Alexandra Antwi-Boasiako is a true Northern Light. Born & raised in Hamburg to Ghanaian parents, she speaks Twi, English and German. As a child she borrowed books from the library even before she was fluent in any of these three languages. The African Book Festival is especially close to her heart, as it creates visibility for African authors in Germany. She studied Creative and Media Enterprise in England and Germany and is a presenter and consultant in the creative and media industry. She has appeared on stage at Filmfest Hamburg, the Berlinale-Africa Hub, the Thalia Theater and at numerous African Empowerment events as a presenter. As InterKontinental’s Literature Ambassador, she is the host of “Alexandra Speaks” a series of virtual talks introducing the audience to some of the African Book Festival 2022 participants.
