About Adolika

My Story

I am Adolika Nenah Sowah, the author of this blog. I am of mixed Ghanaian and Russian parentage and I live in Accra, Ghana, right here on the West African Coast. 

I started this blog as a way to share my love of writing, art and illustration. I am also a classically trained pianist, and these days my love of music has morphed into songwriting and singing. When I was younger, I used to write, paint and compose songs. My professional background and work experience is in the media. I am now a media educator and enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with my students. However this blog is my own little space where I can tell stories in other ways, using pictures, words, and music. It is also a way for me to return to my first love as a child – daydreaming, reinventing, scribbling, doodling, and humming songs along the way.
