My name is Akua Asiedua Asare. Due to my parents diplomatic status and career in the United Nations, I lived and have been educated in the following countries; Ivory Coast, Ghana, Malawi, Ethiopia, Kenya and the United Kingdom.
At the tender age of 11, I attended Ashford Girls boarding school in Ashford, Kent UK. After a couple years there, I joined my parents in Ethiopia, followed by Kenya and back to Ashford for my A-levels. My love for sketching and painting started from the age of 4 yrs old where I would draw; my parents’ portraits, surrounding landscapes and buildings. I was particularly fascinated with the details on Cathedrals, Churches and other buildings hence my pursuit to be an Architect.
I achieved my degree BSc in Architecture from the University of East London in 2004 (RIBA Part 1 qualified) and worked for years in the architectural offices. In 2018, I now work as a Project Co-ordinator for a Structural Engineering company in London.
