Communications student Princess Rinny Anni is among 60 young achievers selected to commemorate Ghana’s 60th independence year. Six achievers will be selected from the 60 to symbolise the ‘Big Six’ founding fathers of Ghana.

As part of this year’s Independence Day celebrations, Coca-Cola Ghana, through Charterhouse event management and production company, set out to recognize 60 young achievers with passion, creativity and charisma, who are making strides in various fields.

The young achievers are drawn from the Entrepreneurship, Entertainment, Education, Technology, Sports and Health sectors.
Princess, a blogger and co-founder of social enterprise Rising Africa, was shortlisted out of over 2,000 nominations submitted.

Her enterprise is helping change the narrative about Africa in the media landscape by highlighting Africa’s success stories.

Princess said: “Rising Africa is more than a brand. It is a movement that seeks to rebrand the continent and give it a new personality. We have to let people learn about the vibrant and buoyant character of our continent and its people. At Rising Africa, we want to populate the media space with inspiring success stories of Africa.”
