EDUCATOR, ENTREPRENEUR, BLOGGER AND HUMANITARIAN
Well, I believe passion is everything. It is that which wakes us up every morning and ask us to go out there and succeed. I love teaching and I do it with passion. However, I love entertainment too. It boils in me and I can’t hide it. So I combine teaching and entertainment very well. I teach during the week days and on weekends I focus on the art and entertainment. My love for entertainment led me to found establish CAPE 360.
Cape 360 is a website that promote Ghanaian Art and focusing on the city of Cape Coast, unearthing talents and promoting already established and the less-known musicians in the region thereby positively channeling their energy into something productive.
Today, almost every event in the region seeks media partnership from Cape 360. The website also serves general news coming from in and around the country. You can check out Cape 360 at www.cape360gh.com
I also blog at www.ekowsimpson.blogspot.com
My NGO, Ekes Possibilities-Education was also established to improve Literacy in English Language through Educational events such as spelling and reading competitions and supporting rural students with educational materials. For the past two years, my team and I have worked in supporting rural kids: Ekes Possibilities – Education.
GROWING UP CHALLENGES AND VALUES
I had my own challenges just like everyone. Growing up wasn’t all smooth. I turned 29 some few weeks back. There were challenges and there still are. I remember in 2011 I bought my first car for a taxi with the intention of making some money to support my educational NGO and ultimately the kids in my school.
I bought it in August, fell seriously sick and admitted in September. My driver had issues with the police through which the car was impounded and later released after three weeks. Within the same week the car was released, I had a call from my driver’s father that the car was involved in an accident and was seriously mangled. God! I almost died.
I gradually overcame the shock and pain and I must say, I became stronger in the face of adversities.
My values for life are simple. I believe more in giving than in receiving. Time is precious and I value timeliness. I believe in hardwork and honesty. I love fun. Above all, I love God.
