The idea to start an organization like that was birthed after visiting the Cape Coast Castle where she got to feel and see what the slaves went through.

"Since then, I knew I had to do something direct and impactful for women who look like myself, my mother, my sister, my auntie etc", Diana said

The brilliant young lady started with training 10 young ladies and currently has over 1000 ladies.

In addition to being a CEO, Diana is also an associate product marketing manager at Google.

According to the young lady, the biggest challenge has been dealing with people who buy into the vision.

YEN.com.gh in a conversation with Diana asked how easily accessible her organisation is to young ladies.

Diana responded as follows;

Almost 90% of all our fellows come through referrals. We pride ourselves on this statistic knowing that our women truly enjoy our masterclasses, conferences, submits and programs that they ensure that their friends and family join as well.

Balancing CEO and employee life

Diana told YEN.com.gh that; "That is such a wonderful question. It is really a beautiful place to be because I get to be the leader and also the follower at the same time. It isn’t really that hard to balance as much as many people would think it would be. It’s all about prioritization, focus and diligence. I really believe that everyone can do so much more than they believe they can with the 24 hours that they have been allotted in the day. So I hope my story goes to show others that you can do more. I also really focus on structuring my day.I have a very strict schedule and even if I don’t fully follow it a try to abide by most of it as much as I can. So my days are very predictable and that helps to bring structure and consistency."
