My name is Innocentia Amoako. Call me Inno to save your time and your breath. I am a product of the Ghana Institute of Journalism and some way somehow life carted me on this path. Admittedly it's a golden chance to have a voice that breaks boundaries and reaches thousands of people across the globe. I believe I'm a part of a better world which is not promised yet hope for tomorrow. This is my part of helping to make the world a better place; for a thousand-mile journey begins with just a step. I don't have a favourite quote or anybody I look up to. I simply believe in myself and whoever I am. You will either find me witty or interesting. Boredom is something I hate!!!
