Frances joined PDA in March 2012. Her background is in Politics and Sociology and completed her Masters in Globalisation and Developement in September 2011 from the University of Sheffield. Growing up in Ghana she always had the urge to come back to Ghana and work within the Human development sector. While at University she co-founded the United Nations Youth and Students Association (UNYSA) in order to provide a place where people could campaign for projects close to their heart. The aim of the association was also to allow students to attend and experience the Model United Nations (MUN) conferences held around the world. The association successfully attended the London Model United Nations twice. Although she is no longer there the association continues to be run by students at the university and they plan on attending the MUN in Geneva this year. " I love being back in Ghana and with an organisation that has had the confidence in me straight out of my masters. i am able to use my own initiative while learning new skills and enhancing my knowledge at PDA."
