Doris Ashrifie

Doris is helping Team Operations in Ghana. She is studying Linguistics and Psychology at the University of Ghana.

In her own words:

Reading has always been a part of my early life. Although I never really appreciated it from the start, as I came of age, my views about the world changed and so did my attitude towards reading. I have always wanted to be a philanthropist so helping Worldreader came naturally.
