About Me

Felicia Amankwa is my name, I am 47 years old. I was born and brought up in a town called Kojokrom, a farming and fishing community near Takoradi in Western region of the republic of Ghana. I had my basic education in Kojokrom. I am the five child among eight siblings. My parent Mr Daniel Kweku Adduh and Madam Kate Asaah were both subsistence farmers and petty traders. I helped my parent so much in their chosen career , so as to raise enough money to be able to pay family bills and our feeding and to be able to pay my school fees. I was determine to go higher in education, releasing a education is key to eradicating poverty in my family and in my community .
Having passed my basic education certificate exams exams successfully I then gained government scholarship into secondary. I then excel in my secondary school certificate exams and then entered Teacher training college. It was my wish to be a teacher. While in school, I was still assisting my parent in their chosen career so as to help in raising enough income for family up keep.
Currently, I am a teacher with ten years teaching experience. Currently, I am doing my further education at Valley View University on part-time basis for a degree.
