Forbes Africa released their yearly list of their #30under30. Three Ghanaians made the list, two males and one female. In in my opinion two is is not enough for an economic power like Ghana but lets keep trying and aiming higher. Scilla Owusu is only 23 years and wears so many hats under her Forbes profile as Video Director, Producer, Screenwriter, and Founder of Youngtrepreneurs. Lewis Appiagyei is only 16 and a car racer and finally Wisdom Mawuli Parku is 26 and the founder of Majora Group.
