Around the World

I was born to an African-American man and a Ghanaian mother. However I was raised solely by my mother, who often warned I 'take charge, make the best of my own life, and show the world what I have to offer.' This video is a depiction of that statement. It involves me telling my story the best way I can - through my art. I show my journey from Ghana to America and the opportunity to go to Australia for study abroad. Since I began university, I have encountered and fallen in love with many different cultures and backgrounds. Currently, it's my dream to study abroad in Australia so I get the chance to experience the culture and develop as an artist since I don't get this opportunity in America due to the rigid structure of my international business concentration in Marketing and Information Systems Analytics major. Fortunately, study abroad allows for more fluidity to explore my artistic abilities.
