Rebecca is determined to be able to contribute to the advancement of Ghana and the African continent in general. She believes that gains in economic, political and social progression have to be matched with a change in mindsets about how we as Africans view our continent and our ability to make an impact. If we don’t believe in our own greatness and always look outwards instead of looking in, nothing will ever change. At the same time, she also believe that it is important to acknowledge our shortcomings and mistakes from the past in order to understand where we need to go in the future. She believes in the importance of African unity and Pan-Africanism, and does not think that it necessarily comes at the expense of managed globalisation.
She worked on the LSE Africa Summit in 2019 as a Business Development Coordinator, and is currently the LSE African Caribbean Society Sponsorship Coordinator. She is also an Executive Director of a non-profit set up with friends in Ghana, and has held several leadership positions and entrepreneurial experiences in school.
Rebecca is currently pursuing a BSc in Politics and International Social and Public Policy at the LSE.
