Born in the very late sixties to Ghanaian parents in Geneva, Switzerland and raised both in Europe and Ghana, Sarah’s formative years were spent mainly in the appreciation of the arts as she enjoys reading, drawing, writing poetry, playing the piano, listening to music and watching films. Not much of an extrovert, she watched a lot of films and read about film artistes as well. Though she had the desire to become a solicitor in the future, which influenced her selection of subjects towards that persuasion, she found herself, as fate would have it, doing her National Service in the Film Editing Department at the erstwhile Ghana Film Industry Corporation for a year from September 1985. A year later, after her interest in cinema had reached a high degree, she applied to the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI) where she pursued a programme in Film and Video Editing (1986-1989) earning a Professional Diploma. She won a Fulbright scholarship to pursue a Master’s degree in Cinema Studies at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York (2000- 2003). She has been working in film education and training since.
