“Yea Ghana is the most beautiful country in the world. Wow it’s a rare and good feeling to consistently wake up with peace and happiness. I really owe that to Ghana. I’ll never forget suddenly crying the first time going to a beach in Ghana. It was so triggering. And I didn’t feel alone. My heart ached/aches for my ancestors. Ghana is my ancestral home. It was a surreal experience.”
