My name is Gladys Adarkwah and I am the CEO & Founder of GLOW ADVENTURES, where we believe in igniting your passion for exploration and self discovery through durable, functional and stylish travel essentials.

My father moved my siblings and I to the United States from Ghana when I was just 8 years old. This was my first time ever leaving the only home I knew, so I really struggled to adjust culturally which led to many years of bullying. But one day when I was 17 I made this bold decision to travel with a group of 14 other strangers from different backgrounds, for a month to South Africa to “take a break” and get a change of scenery. For the next month, I journaled every day and allowed myself to be immersed in the culture, allowing myself to grow more and more into the resilient go-getter I am now, without feeling bound to the circumstances of my environment.

To say the least, I did not know that the trip would completely change my life forever! For the first time in my life I began to gain a true understanding of who I was and how I fit into this big world we live in. By the time I was 20, I had traveled to 16 countries and continued to cultivate a deep appreciation for the transformative power of travel.

Traveling around the world, getting to interact and work with so many different people helped me become the confident, adaptable and culturally aware individual I am today.
