Public Relations executive, women’s advocate and owner of Louisa’s kitchen, Louisa Kwakye, has charged the youth to keep in mind always that they are never too young to delve into entrepreneurship.

A lot of times, people wait till they are done with school and begin to go through the struggles of getting a nine-to-five before deciding that they need to start their own small business. Louisa, speaking on eTV Ghana’s Girl Vibes with Mercy Bee the Ekumfi Princess, advised against this.

According to her, one can start entrepreneurship even while they are still in school and when they get a job after school, it still would not hurt to keep the business running as a side gig in addition to the nine to five.

Speaking as a PR executive, she said, “Most people expect that if you’re a Public Relations personnel, your work is only in the office and you have nothing doing in the kitchen but then one of the major courses GIJ taught me was entrepreneurship, so if you’re done with school and no office is accepting to employ you, create something for yourself and be proud of your hustle.”

Louisa is a Public Relations expert who recently graduated from the renowned Ghana Institute of Journalism, but is currently growing her own food business, ‘Louisa’s kitchen’.
