Boakyewaa Glover joins “Women of the World: Talking about a Revolution”, AWDF and Alliance Francaise Accra’s book slam this Friday in commeoration of ‘International Women’s Day’. Boakyewaa is the author of ‘Circles’, a gripping saga featuring a young woman who realises that her life increasingly goes around in …yup, you guessed it, circles.
On Sunday 3rd March, Boakyewaa performed a reading of Circles on the ‘Writers Project of Ghana’ show on Citi 97.3Fm in Ghana. Here she is reading a short clip.
Boakyewaa has had a colorful and diverse career to date, including working as an Organizational Psychologist/Consultant for a number of consulting firms in New York, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. Prior to that, she was a News Anchor for TV3 Network and a TV Presenter for Smash TV on Metro TV. Through it all, Boakyewaa’s passion and love for writing has grown steadily, and she’s gone from writing on computer rolls and scrap paper at age 6, to publishing Circles in 2009, with two additional books lined up for publication summer 2013.
Boakyewaa also maintains a blog of short stories, articles, poems and other content such as movie reviews. Beyond writing, Boakyewaa has three other very strong, and influencing passions. First is her dedication and commitment to her family and God; second is her avid interest in psychological and philosophical theories (she studied psychology both at NYU (graduate degree) and the University of Ghana (undergraduate degree); and third is her addiction to entertainment – particularly movies, TV, music and books. In this regard, Boakyewaa refers to herself as a connoiseur of life in general, and regards life as it is as her ultimate muse.
Boakyewaa Glover is currently a Change Management Manager working for Newmont Ghana Gold Limited.
