Society Thinks Independent Women Sleep Around Which Is False – Debby Queen, Founder of Dusaf Shares in Exclusive Interview With SammytheAuthor.


In Your Journey to Success, You will definitely encounter series of Challenges but sail through it, don’t allow it sail through you. You more than a Conqueror. You have what it takes to make your dreams a Reality. Today on Exclusives with SammytheAuthor, an Inspiring Talented Ghanaian Serial Entrepreneur, shares with us, her life story and career as an Entrepreneur and CEO of DEBLICIOUS CUISINE AND EVENTS and DYNAMIC UNITED STARS AFRICA FOUNDATION. Checkout the Interview Below.

1: Tell us a bit about You, who is Miss. Deborah Oduro?

Miss Deborah Oduro is one talented young lady with many skills you can think of. She is an entrepreneur making so much impact in society with her genius smiles and affectionately called DEBBYQUEEN. The last girl in her family and the fifth born to her parents whom she promised to make proud. Her educational background started at St. Thomas Preparatory School and continued to finish both primary and junior high at Osu Home School after which she failed to attend secondary school just because her childhood best friend was home and wanted school together with her. This made her parents seek admission for both of them into Salem Senior High School and graduated into the nursing school at City of London Business college where she studied General Nursing. She is the founder of DYNAMIC UNITED STARS AFRICA FOUNDATION (DUSAF) which is a charity organization that aims at eradicating poverty in Africa and beyond, Ceo of DEBLICIOUS CUISINE AND EVENTS, DE-QUEENS USHERING AGENCY and DEBSAM BABY PALACE as well as the face behind MC_DEBBYQUEEN.

2: What’s the Story behind Your Personality?

Story behind my personality I will say it’s by Grace.

3: As the Founder & CEO, what inspired your decision to commence Dynamic United Stars Africa Foundation (Dusaf)?
Starting my NGO has always been with me. I always want to make people smile and leave an impact.

4: What is your take on Youth Unemployment in Ghana? Anything Sharable?

We have made ourselves slave to unemployment. The youth nowadays want everything fast without going through the process. Jobs are available but they feel too big to serve. Before anyone becomes a master, he or she must serve.

5: What other services do you offer under De-Queens Ushering Agency?

DE-QUEENS USHERING AGENCY IS A FULL SERVICE EVENT MANAGEMENT HUB IN GHANA AVAILABLE TO HELP CLIENTS HAVE A UNIQUE PERFECT BRANDING EVENTS AT AFFORDABLE PRICES.

Our team consist of both male and female professionals.

6: In your quest to achieve your set goals, what are some of the Challenges You encountered or still facing?

Challenges I faced were a lot but will share a few. It’s difficult for a lady to make it without the male trying to use its intelligence. Only 10% of Ghanaian men are real and genuine when it comes to supporting females.
Some bosses instead of assisting you to accomplish your goals feel too scared you might over take them and therefore sabotage you making you feel you can’t do anything without them. Society thinks independent women sleep around which is false. Raising capital is a big problem just as getting sponsors to support your vision.

7: In your line of business and from journey so far as an Entrepreneur, how would You define Failure?

Failure is when one allows fear to control its mind. When you scared of something, you turn to listen to everyone without believing in your capabilities which drags you into failure. You are your own vision car and you only can drive only if you pay attention to the road signs.
