My name is Akosua Bamfo. I go by Sua but “Akosua”, meaning a girl born on sunday, really captures my identity as an African American with Ghanaian blood running through her veins. I mostly see myself as an artist. Not because of the art I create but because of my perception of the world and thoughts about how I can contribute to something bigger than myself. I currently hold a B.A. in Public Health as I am particularly passionate about mental, children and women’s health education and awareness.
I am mostly a writer. I write about my passions. I write with the intentions of spreading love, light and hope. While I mostly write, because I feel it’s the one outlet where I can be the most expressive and most original; I also enjoy dancing, painting and anything nature related. I like coffee and movies and I like singing loudly and taking really hot candle lit baths lol. In real life I am pursing my MS in EDU at Johns Hopkins and a proud member of the 2016 Urban Teachers cohort.
My intentions with this blog are to capture my thoughts, feelings and he[art] all in one platform. I hope to inspire others to follow me on this journey.
