She told Ato Kwamina and Frema Adunyame on Citi TV’s Upside Down that she is rather interested in humanity than in politics.
“You know, it’s not an interest in politics; it’s an interest for humanity. I believe that we all need to be in a world where and it is very idealistic of me but I believe that we need to be in a world where everybody has the basics of life; food, shelter, water you know, the basic amenities so it’s not even about politics”.
She further added that she sees that as an opportunity to help others.
“It is a desire for me because I know what it’s like to not have and what it’s like to have and I feel like we have lost our way as humanity. I was having a conversation with my friend the other day and I was like something like land and building have become something we have to yearn for. It is your birth right as a human being,” she added.
