I completed a BSc in Nursing at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana, in 2009 for which I was awarded a first. Following this, I completed an MSc in Advanced Nursing at the University of Nottingham in 2014, achieving a distinction.

In September 2015, I received the University of Manchester's President Doctoral Award to pursue my PhD in Nursing at the Division of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work. My research is exploring adolescents with sickle cell disease fatigue experiences in a sub-Saharan African context.
