19 Sep Allah-Mensah’s Story
Prior to her entry into the Evolvin’ Women Pop Up Academy program, Allah-Mensah worked as an intern at a hotel in Ghana.In only Seven months into the program, she had already earned 20 online training certificates, as well as accumulated 16 hours of mentoring and 100 face-to-face training hours.
“Without such a global experience it would take quite a while (for me) to progress (in Ghana). Experience is one thing that really sells. I’m very fortunate that I can come face-to-face with what hospitality really is in a city like Dubai and make the comparison between how services are rendered here and how services are rendered back home. So for me it’s a big stepping stone to have this on my CV.” She recalls of her experience.
The 28-year-old single mother, Allah-Mensah is not one to shy away from a challenge. She describes her son as her driving force for a better life and says he’s among the main motivating factors for her success. It’s evident that she’s willing to do what she believes she must, to safeguard a future for her son. Her approach to the matter is seen as purely logical, despite the emotional hurt. She believes a temporary loss is inconsequential in light of a bigger, better picture. She says she’s learned to enjoy the little joys that come with being employed in a developed scenario such as the UAE, among which she mentions using her money to purchase gifts for her son back in Ghana. Allah-Mensah shows characteristics of an entrepreneur; her outlook from this experience is to use this newly gained knowledge to evolve the market when she returns back.
Her goals are to return back home and set up a family business in the events sector and to build a legacy for her son. As can be seen, she is eternally grateful and her tale is an inspiration to the others that will follow.
