Felicia Apprey Agyare – the founder of The African LIFE

Meet Felicia Apprey Agyare. Felicia is a woman who lives to the beat of her own drum. She’s a people’s person, a lover of life and a person determined to make a small mark before she leaves this world.

“As the founder of The African LIFE, my goal is to provide a platform for Africans to showcase their culture and for the world. My objective is to use everyday life to connect and learn about the culture.”

“I love the diversity and the community feel of Hyde Park. It makes you feel like you are in a cool city by itself. The tranquility of Hyde Park makes you feel as if you’re in a safe space.”

“One of my favorite businesses in Hyde Park is the Sophy Hotel. It is also one of my favorite places in Chicago. This luxury hotel has a boutique feel in a high-end space with great artwork, good service and good food. It just makes you feel great being there.”

“The happiest moment of my life is when I became a mother and held my son for the first time. It was such a great feeling, a feeling that makes you want to shower him with love and affection.”  

“The saddest moment of my life is the passing of my great grandmother who died in Ghana. Sadly, I couldn’t go to her funeral because I was 7 months pregnant at the time.”

“My great grandmother is the most influential person in my life. She had no formal education; however, she was a very strong and determine woman who owned many buildings in Ghana.”

“What I regret the most is not taking school more seriously. It is the foundation for your future. It’s not for everyone; but, it was for me, and I didn’t realize that until I got older.”

“My proudest moment is when I took my tribe, Akuapem Tribe, to the ABC 7 studio for a segment on the GhanaFest in Chicago. We were given the opportunity to share our culture, food, dance and music. This authentic event was exciting not only for the Ghanaian community; but for the entire African community in Chicago.”
