Diana Kinimah loves a good challenge. In 2011, Diana came to Canada from her native Ghana in the pursuit of a better life for herself and her family.
However, she hadn’t anticipated the personal and professional hardships that were to follow.
After the breakdown of her marriage, she suddenly found herself caring for two young children with little support.
Even though she had a university degree, Diana struggled to find a job. Needing money, she opened a home-based daycare. “At that time, I didn’t realize it but running my business helped me pick up newer skills in administration, accounting and finance.”
Today, Diana is an
Information Officer with the federal government.
