Yvonne is a secular humanist from the Volta Region of Ghana. From an early age, she was driven to expand her knowledge of the world through music, books, and movies. She is still very passionate about music, and credits that love for her humanistic perception of the world. Read No cherries, no worries, Yvonne's post on the expectations which Ghanaian culture has of women.
After graduating from high school, Yvonne studied graphic design for a year and worked as a secretary for a small company in Accra before taking a short course in child care and working as a nanny. She spent a year in South Africa working again as a nanny and touring the country. During that time, she joined the Durban Freethinkers of SA, which led naturally to her joining the Humanist Association of Ghana when she moved to Accra four years ago. She started volunteering with HA: Ghana in July 2015 and became the Ghana Administrator in 2017.
