It is said that the best teacher is experience and being mother to a preterm baby gave her a little too much of that.

Doreen Addy, a student of University of Ghana, studying Human Resource management, has had a few experiences working with people.

She has worked in different work settings, all involving meeting and interacting with people on a daily basis. Undoubtedly her best by far was working with her preterm baby; it opened doors she never thought existed.

She learnt, did and overcame a lot of the challenges that come with having a premature baby. She is happy to share and support all other mothers going through the same/similar predicament. She has a strong passion to help children in general and her drive was further fuelled by the early birth of her son.

She is a member of Secretarial and support teams of the Jay Foundation.
