My name is Antoinette Buah. I am twenty-five years of age and has completed University for Development Studies. I had my attachment at Adamus Resource Limited and my national service at Environmental Protection Agency where I was exposed to some communities who were facing a lot of challenges. EPA was a bridge between the community and the companies who normally comes up with a project in the communities. We normally seek to that none of them is cheated on. I really learnt a lot through. I came up with this youthsup foundation so as to also lease with other organisations, individuals to help our youths and not only having the burden on themselves. Throughout my life, I have been a leader and I am still a leader. I always put my people find to a better condition and I am still doing that especially those in deprived communities. I come from a rural area so I know how it feels not to be exposed to a lot things. In my community I happened to be the first female to have graduated from the university before 2019 where a cousin of mine also graduated.
