Celine Akosua Henry

Celine Akosua Henry is a postgraduate student in Africa and International Development at the University of Edinburgh. Celine has a passion for development and World History, with specific enthusiasm for the decolonisation of African states. Having previously curated research at the Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation Celine contributes to wider debates and work of parts of west-African history and politics both through academic and professional work and hopes to continue doing this. 

Another passion for Celine is also raising awareness about societal issues for young people through series of articles and events through a social action project called Mind Your Language. Growing up in a heavily populated Ghanaian community in inner-city London Celine aims to be part of the Second & Third generation diaspora in the UK who is able to make an impact and inspire others, however big or small. She believes that the Future of Ghana initiative is a powerful idea, because not only does it empower young Ghanaians
