According to Ankomah, her life has changed after she immigrated to Vietnam to work as an English teacher.

Delayed payments

She, however, expressed concern about delays in payment, while adding that at the height of the prevailing pandemic, the profession was affected.

"Before the pandemic, Black teachers took $600. But during the pandemic, the white teachers left. So now I take $1,300. Others also receive $1,200 to $3,000," she said.

Ankomah taught at Juaben Senior High while in Ghana and lived a comfortable life.

She further mentioned that she was not living in deprived conditions while in Ghana but a travel agent cajoled her to relocate.
