Last week, the Haitian population took to the streets to participate in the 2010 Haitian Presidential Election. The BBC wrote: “this Sunday’s presidential election in Haiti will either be a triumph of democracy over an almost unbelievably grim reality – or a farce” .

It is a strong statement, but the reality is that this election and its results are crucial for Haiti and its future. We at Nomadic Wax are most concerned about the role of young Haitians in this historic moment, and what their hopes are for the future of their country.

As you all know, Nomadic Wax has partnered with Haitian artist Vox Sambou and Haitian underground production company ProVision, to create the third film in our ‘Democracy in…’ documentary series. Our production team has been in Port Au Prince for the last week. Starting on Thursday, we had two more teams start shooting in the Haitian Diaspora communities in NYC and in Montreal. Our NYC team was headed up by talented Haitian-American filmmaker and photographer Michel Dessources Jr, who is also director of a new documentary film on street kids in Port Au Prince (www.ChildrenOfaMotherlessLand.org). Our Montreal team is headed up by non other than well known Haitian artist/activist Vox Sambou.

Our three teams spent all weekend shooting different perspectives on the increasingly fragile political situation in Haiti. Lena and our team in Port Au Prince spent all yesterday filming at voting booths, in the streets, at the Press Conference held by 12 of the presidential candidates calling for the election to be canceled, and the following impromptu rally’s in the streets with candidate Sweet Micky and Wyclef Jean.

The next few days are precarious, to say the least. The situation is extremely fragile and much depends on the decision that the government must make on whether to recall the vote or to let the vote stand as is. Our team remains in Port Au Prince over the next few days.

In our next update, we will introduce you to our three primary characters in the film: young poet and student Rodlin, female political rapper EUD, and the increasingly internationally famous Port Au Prince graffiti writer and philosopher Jerry.

On Sunday, we also celebrated the completion of our fund-raising campaign for Phase 2 of production for the Democracy in Haiti film project. Thank you so much for your support. This has been a humbly experience and we are so grateful for your support.

With Gratitude,

The DIH Team: Magee McIlvaine, Ben Herson, Lena Jackson, Vox Sambou, and the ProVision crew

Kira Forex: The Ghanaian woman setting the pace in the Forex Trading business

Published

on

The advent of new media and digital money-making platforms has provided a plethora of opportunities for people to earn money and transform their life stories through legitimately acquired wealth and affluence.

One such life-changing and lucrative opportunity presented by new media is the forex trading business, which has surged in the past decade, leading to the creation of millions of new millionaires and billionaires worldwide.

Forex Trading is essentially the art of studying the global currency market and leveraging information about currency rates to buy and exchange currencies on a forex marketing platform.

The popularity of Forex Trading has soared in the country over the past half-decade, with several Ghanaians studying currency trends and making significant financial gains from it. However, only one name stands out in the business.

Amid the growing interest in the Forex Trading business in the country, only one name has emerged as the pioneer and pacesetter: Lamidi Sikira, better known by her brand name, “Kira Forex.”

Just as Yaa Asantewaa is synonymous with feminine bravery in Ghana, Kira Forex has become the prime face of Ghanaian and African excellence in the forex trading business.

With over ten years of experience, Kira Forex has rightfully earned the reputation of a forex trading luminary, with several awards in Ghana and across the continent validating her position as one of Africa’s leading forex traders.

Her success in the field is so profound that she revealed in 2023 that she turned down a $20,000-a-month job to continue leading the pack in the forex trading industry.

A trait of Kira Forex that endears her to many Ghanaians is her selflessness and willingness to guide others, particularly Ghanaian women, out of poverty. Having established herself in the field, Kira Forex founded the Kira Forex Academy with the goal of enlightening Ghanaians, especially women, about the forex trading industry, enabling them to earn money from the comfort of their homes.

A staunch advocate for the independence and growth of women, Kira Forex believes that financial freedom is the most crucial condition for independence and is thus leading many Ghanaian women on the path to financial freedom and wealth.

She also established the Kira Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization committed to enlightening, enriching, and empowering individuals in Ghana and across Africa. Through this foundation, she actively supports programs and social causes aimed at improving the lives of youths and the elderly, exemplifying her commitment to serving humanity.

Her outstanding work as a Forex Trader and philanthropist has earned her several awards, including Most Influential Trader and Best Forex Trader in Singapore, Outstanding Service Award in Nigeria, Africa’s Under 40 CEOs Award in Uganda, and Best Female Forex Trader of the Year in South Africa, among others.
