[Tunisia's Ambassador]



[Age : 33 years]
[Town of residence : Tunis]


I am a Ghanaian-Ivorian-American who has been living in Tunis, Tunisia since 2010. Like most enterprising over-achievers, I work as a poverty avenger in the Treasury department of a major multilateral development bank and also founded an emerging interiors styling company called Blueprint Africa. I have been to over 30 countries around the world from Costa Rica to the Philippines but have a special affinity for my continent and am happy to bring you treasures from the northernmost tip of Africa. Welcome to Tunisia!
