She was Born in Techimantia, a farming community in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, on the 23rd of July, 1972, she is a Christian Married with two , she speaks English, Spanish ,Akan, Ga and understands Portuguese. She was bred in a culture which had little prospects for girl-child education.

Trekking daily to and from school at a nearby village through a lonely bush path carrying on the head her table and chair, little Hanna embraced the situation with pride and excitement. Growing up was without Television or Radio and her evenings were spent doing the homework and learning with her peers with “BOBO” lamp, a lantern and sometimes under the moonlight while baby-sitting a younger sibling. Throughout her Primary school to the Junior Secondary school, Hanna excelled in her examinations with distinction.
