My name is Bridget Boakye and I’m on a mission to bridge the gap: to connect people, businesses, and most importantly perspectives on the African continent and in the Diaspora.

Having grown up in both the U.S. and Ghana, I have a deep connection to, and understand movements in both places. I want to use the privilege of perspective to share experiences and trends and insights that will help move both the continent and Diaspora forward.

On the day to day, I am the cofounder of YNG Africa. YNG Africa is an online platform that connects employers around the world to talent and capacity builders in Africa. Our vision is to become a booking platform for skill training, incentivizing and helping millions of young Africans to get trained for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

I am passionate about economics, development, education, technology, women’s rights, as well as pop culture, music, travel, and health/fitness. I am a proud member of the Global Shapers Accra Hub.

I am so excited and grateful that you have decided to join me on the journey. I hope you will say hi, contact me, or leave a comment.
