"I want to set my dream sailing, not knowing where I am going is the best part of my journey"......I also want to break out of my current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.
I'm a genuine,honest,simple,open-minded,trust worthy and sociable person. My friends called "kingraf" or "Radiant". I am a native of Tamale the north part of Ghana. I love music, sports, movies, meeting new people, exchange of culture, working on computers and hang out with friends. I also like to help people and i have good reputation in my neighborhood.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness. That most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small, Does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking, So that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, As children do. We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; It's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
In that dark lonesome place between a dream dreamed and a dream realized,
I have left a little light for you so you will know that someone cares and believes in your dream.
Just where it becomes the most dark and difficult to find your way, there is the light I left for you.
It will light your way, through the doubt, the confusion, and the fears,
It will stay with you all the way to the realization of your dream.
And when your dream has come true, please go back to that darkest place
where you have been,
And set the little light there to give heart to the next sweet soul that braves the path to his or her dreams.
Dreamers are the architects of greatness. There wisdom lies within their souls.
Dream long enough and hard enough and your dream can be attained.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I was looking for a website on the internet where i could make online friends when i came across couch surfing but after signing up i later realize is not place for penpals friends so ignored it until i had my first host in 2007 and i became much interested and now hosting people has become part of me.
Well,i don't have any travel experience yet but i have hosted number of people from different parts of world and i think it is really a great experience for me,though i haven't visited any country outside Ghana but those that i have hosted always share with me the lifestyles,cultures and everything about their countries.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Yet to experience something so amazing
Teach, Learn, Share
We have a traditional festival known as the Damba and Bugum festivals.
This are very interesting festivals and they are celebrated annually.There is display of traditional tactics and magical display and believe me,life here becomes more interesting during this period.Folktales are told during this period and alot are done like the cleansing of skin lands and libations are poured to the "gods" for the mercy and prosperity.
There are two types of chieftancy systems in Ghana,these are the enskinment and enstoolment.Enskinment means chiefs who seat on skins of animal like lion,elephants,this skins of wild animals portrays the greatness of the chiefs.The enskinment is only practice in the northern part of the country and that is where i live.
Enstoolment means chiefs who seats on stools and this are practice in the southern part of the country.For their stools,it has some affiliations which are associated with inheritance of their great forefathers who were chiefs.I known you may be surprised to hear that this sought of thing still happens in some parts of the world,but people here and my tribe finds it normal and necessary.
So i think i would teach whoever wants to learn my culture and tradition.
