I have extensive experience in the management of diet-related diseases and obesity.
I served as an intern at the Bia West District Health Directorate, lead nutrition officer at the Essam Government Hospital, and with the Cocoa Clinic, Sefwi Debiso, between 2015-2017, where I implemented and managed various DRD clinics.
I championed several Health Education and Screening outreaches for diabetes and hypertension across churches, schools, organizations, and media stations in the Western Region of Ghana.
My deep passion is to make an impact on the lives of Ghanaians through nutrition. I am a founding member of Hoystic Nutrition, an organization that believes that community productivity can be achieved through sustainable nutrition interventions.
I now wish to contribute to creating a healthy population through sustainable nutrition initiatives with the establishment of a chain of health food stores that promote nutrition and health.
I have identified the sources of supply for the products I propose to sell. I am very familiar with those products that promote good health, and are safe for consumption.

I am working on it.
Techiman, Brong Ahafo Region, Ghana.
My first nutrition store will open in Techiman, with your support. The store will be fully fitted out and stocked with nutritional products.
The market for my products is individuals of all ages, sick or healthy, who are striving for a strong and sustainable life.
My website will catalogue and display all my products. Anyone anywhere will be able to select the products they want and then pay for them online. I will then ship to them. This is my virtual storefront and will be a fantastic complement to my physical store.
This project contains one or more elements of the 17 United Nations initiatives for sustainability.
I am firmly behind all United Nations Sustainability goals and I will endeavour to reach out to all people I am associated with to encourage sustainable practices for the products I seek to sell. and in the management of our most precious environment. In my business I will do all I can to reduce my carbon footprint, including alternative energy, waste recycling, careful use of water, and the use of biodegradable packaging.
I will reach out to the poor in our communities to try to include them in our way forward to a more sustainable future.
