The story of 27-year-old the CEO of OB’s Kitchen could be described as a classic case of serendipity.

Growing up as a young girl, Doris had the dream of becoming a medical doctor. Be that as it may, life turned things out of her favour. She lost her mother during her first year in SHS.

As though that was not enough, she had to go through the ordeal of having her father suffer a stroke just when she completed Senior High School.

 Doris was born at Kibi but grew up in Koforidua-Kukurantumi because her mum was transferred to New Tafo Akim Government hospital.

I will change lives of slum dwellers in Ayawaso West Wuogon when I become MP – John Dumelo

She had her basic education at Rose’s School Complex and Akim Commercial College JHS. She continued to Akwamuman SHS where she read Science. After successfully completing SHS, She continued to the tertiary level at KNUST reading BSc Mathematics and MSc Actuarial Science.

Responding to a question on why she now sells food Doris said ”I lost my mum in my 1st year in SHS so I had to go live with my Dad who came into my life when I was 13. My dream was to become a Medical Doctor but my Dad had stroke a month after I completed SHS so I had to do Mathematics which is cheaper and takes 4 years.”

She narrated that ”I was supported by strangers and my Dad’s sick pay I did service with Goldfields and had a contract with ESCO but I lost it after I gathered money to go study for my Master’s Degree I became unemployed and decided to cook for homes and bachelors for income because cooking was my hobby. I learned how to do pastries online.”

Despite the challenging experiences, Doris has braved the odds to become the CEO of OB’s Kitchen. A food hub that prepares mouthwatering local delicacies for deliveries.

She also has an online food class that takes participants through cooking and a few of her self made recipes.

Doris says she is hoping to get a mainstream job to make use of her knowledge. She, however, has plans to open branches of OB’s kitchen all over Ghana and eventually do her Ph.D.
