Ghanaian journalist and editor, Danielle Kwateng, has been named as the executive editor for Teen Vogue.
She was appointed after the embattled magazine parted ways with its former editor Alexi McCammond after staff complained about the racist tweets she posted in 2011.
Kwateng who is also an entrepreneur and cultural critic introduced herself as the new executive editor of Teen Vogue in a post on the company’s website.
She disclosed the magazine ''plan[s] to evolve with its readers because we can't be the young person’s guide to saving the world without [its readers]."
Before her appointment as executive editor, Kwateng had worked at Teen Vogue for two years as the magazine's entertainment and culture director.
Just like her predecessor, she has already faced criticisms about comments she's made in the past in response to the news of her appointment.
In an Instagram post, however, Kwarteng celebrated her achievement.
