As promised here’s the first profile of an African Face in NY series. I ask the questions, he answers :-)
Dude what’s your name?
Barima Kodjo Asante-Sakyi III
Where you’re from?
Born & raised in Accra, Ghana. Also raised in NYC.
What do you do in NY?
Baruch College graduate, currently working as an IT Analyst at Citigroup. I like to sometimes call myself a connoisseur of music, (expect maybe country)
How long have you been living in NY?
4.5 years, since I started college.
What do you think of Vanity Fair latest issue on Africa? (if you read it of course):
WONDERFUL. It’s about time the world sees Africa for what it has accomplished, and not for its images of AIDS victims, famine, and Darfur. Kudos to Bono!
The last word (anything you’d like to add):
Live life to the fullest. In other words, whatever you do in life, make sure you do it “AVEC CLASSE”!!
