Dorcas Okyere (UK)
I am a second generation British Ghanaian woman. I study International Relations & Politics at the University of Essex. I have developed a clear understanding of domestic and international politics, as well as how organizations such as the World Trade Organization (WTO), the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU), operate. This has provided me with a solid understanding of the issues involved in international relations and the significance of politics as a global activity which has led to me writing. I’m very passionate about advocating African politics to young people, it is important that we aware of the challenges we face back home and most importantly the successes. Rounding a team of successful, driven individuals who are passionate about giving back to Africa is my ultimate goal. My Father , has had the greatest influence on me . This ideology was instilled in me from a very young age. My dad taught me that I can break down barriers regardless of my age , skin colour and gender. My father is also the very person who introduced me to politics, constant debates and discussions led to my interest with politics in Africa. In the next five years I want to have a stable and credible platform for African Diaspora.
