    Isn’t the seemingly sharp contrast simply fascinating? How a holder of Masters in Chemical Engineering turns a social and soul-touching author. Limitless possibilities indeed!….Adu-Gyamfi, The SocialCaptain. .

    Your writing is always such a pleasure to read, Nana. I love the way that you give the reader credit by not over explaining things, but instead offering them an informed path to follow. The more light hearted of your stories always make me smile and miss West Africa. I have a baby daughter now and hope to bring her one day 🙂
