      Interesting observation. People have said the same thing about First Lady Michelle Obama but look how she has used her role to expanded the concept of beauty in a Eurocentric world and wonderfully represented all women of the diaspora on the global stage. I’m sure both Ms. Osei and the First Lady took the bus but look at where they are now. It shows that with hardwork and focus (despite the ignorance of anonymous haters such as yourself), you can do anything that you put your mind to as well as be an example to black and African women everywhere. KUDOS!!

    Congrats Afua! You are so smart and beautiful and show that we African women can achieve so many different things if we work hard and persevere. Let this inspire and motivate many other young women to go towards their goals.
