Being born in Ghana, Ivy tells Diallo that her family moved to Canada when she was 22 months and since then she’s lived her whole life in Canada.

She moved to Ghana in 2011 for a vacation after the Canadian and American economy collapsed. “This was my mother’s idea,” Ivy said.

Upon her visit to Ghana to relax, Ivy tells Diallo that she got a job within a couple of weeks attending a friend’s party, “this happened during a conversation, I got a job at SOS college running a creative writing center and eventually got another job hosting a TV show, the maternal health channel all through networking.”

Ivy spent 3years in Ghana and then moved back to Canada after shooting all episodes of the maternal health show.
