Meet Ruth Gladstone
Ruth Gladstone is an entrepreneur and a student at the University of Ghana. She is ambitious, tenacious, confident and charming. She is directed by high biblical and moral standards.
She loves photography, fashion, modelling and arts– poetry, drama and short stories. She is inspired by the world around her. She tells stories; stories about people, about places, things and nostalgia. She believes story-writing is a medium through which the untold stories are uncovered. She looks forward to enhancing her creative talent in the arts world and serving as a voice for the voiceless. Stories are also for fun. All work and no play, they say, makes Jack a dull boy. Thus, she writes short, humourous stories too. Words have power; but its power lies in how tactfully and beautifully they are stitched together to create a wonderful story.
