Chief Executive Officer of Base Dynasty, Dorothy Amuah has disclosed that she adapted to being self-reliant at a very young age.
Sharing her inspiring story on Y107.9 FM’s Y Leaderboard Series with LJ, she recounted how she relocated to the United Kingdom after experiencing her early childhood in Ghana.
According to her, her father was exiled from the country during the military regime, the darkest years in Ghana’s political history, as she together with her siblings were forced to move abroad.
“I grew up in Ghana, was born here and grew up here. I come from a family of five children and my parents were here as well so I did my primary school here. I attended Association International School at Airport and had to live Ghana unfortunately at a young age and relocated to England. Unfortunately because my father was exiled during the military ruling regime so family was sort of torn apart for a bit. We relocated to England and went to boarding school with my siblings; later my parents joined us,” she shared.
For her, experiencing such nerve-breaking events allowed her to stand up for herself and be an independent woman.
“So that transition was sort of a bit unnerving but we lived through it anyway. Regardless it taught me to be quite independent at a very young age,” he continued.
Dorothy Amuah is the foremost Ghanaian voice on cancer and its related issues and also the founder of the Dorothy’s Hope Foundation (DHF)- a non-profit organization.
