About me
Everybody is given a talent that they should discover and develop, and my talent is my natural strong abilities in languages. I was born and grew in an environment conducive to the learning of many languages including Moore, Jula, English , French, Arabic, and German. The best way for me to make a difference is to use this talent in the service of those who need it. As a Translator/Interpreter, I give the best of myself for the customer full satisfaction.

I have been translating and interpreting in various fields including banking, cinema, logistics and transport water and sanitation, and project monitoring and evaluation. One of my best experiences is working as both a translator and interpreter for filmmakers during the flagship African cinema festival FESPACO, Panafrican Film and Television Festival of Ouagadougou. Apart from that I travelled to Niger as a translator and interpreter for The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority. I also worked as an interpreter for the JICA, Japanese International Cooperation Agency in projects related to water and sanitation.

To better polish my language competency and cultural awareness of my target language which is English, I applied successfully for the Fulbright program to study TESL in the U.S at the Department of English of Minnesota State University, Mankato. I obtained a Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language with a focus on Needs Assessment of translation programs and English for Specific Purposes.
