Prisca is a young woman born and raised in Ghana, and as an exceptional and determined academic performer she participated in the Swiss Re Start-up Academy in January 2019 in Ghana.

Where do you see yourself in 20 years from now?
“In the next 20 years I see myself as one of the most influential entrepreneur, mentor, motivational speaker and founder of a life-changing NGO in my community. This NGO would be transforming lives in my community and the world at large and making it a better place to live for both the present and future generation.”
What inspired you for your business idea?
