Born in Chicago to Dr. Eb & Mrs. Beatrice Mensah Tayui, she heeded the call from the President of the Republic of Ghana for the diaspora to engage in the Year of Return and beyond to come back to their home country Ghana. She took a gap year to do just that, so that she could learn more of her culture and be of service to her people.
During her gap year, she worked as Executive Director of Communications at the KJM Foundation, supporting the efforts to bring clean drinking water to under privileged communities in Ghana through the drilling of boreholes.
