Let’s Start Here… Full Name Age Akosua Sapara‐Grant 27 Ah‐ko‐sue‐ah Languages English Nationality American Sign Language African‐America (Ghanaian) Current Location Douglasville, Georgia
Born and Raised in Los Angeles, California… My ﬁrst job was at a law ﬁrm in Torrance doing clerical work, I was also responsible for maintaining cases. (I know the diﬀerence between a discovery and pleading!)
Went to California State University, Northridge majoring in Sociology. Go Matadors!!! This is an actual picture. Don’t you love the palm trees??????
Worked in the campus bookstore as a customer service representative from 2003 until 2004
I did it! I graduated from school in the summer of 2006. But, then it was time to say goodbye… (tear tear)
Atlanta, please say hello to Akosua!!! (applause)
I signed up with Lessons from Around the World to teach children sign language. I organized seasonal skits…taught them diﬀerent words and phrases using countries, colors, and everyday life activities. It was awesome!!! Think you can spell your name?
I worked for a credit repair company, Power Credit Solutions, as an assistant to the owner…I pretty much ran the oﬃce…until I decided to go back to school. I took English courses at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, GA while working as a student assistant for the Access Oﬃce. (the second university with black, white, and red colors…weird, huh?)
Now, I attend University of Phoenix for an MBA. I’m expected to graduate in December 2012.
