She's done it again! After her Russian adventures as Ghana's only accredited journalist to attend all seven rounds of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, international football journalist Angela Akua Asante aka Triple A has crafted a whole new project.

This time, to bring coverage of the biggest Women's World Cup ever in the history of Women's Football. It will be a huge understatement to describe the impending experience as one which would be merely fascinating.

Primarily, the fact that tickets to the opening and Final fixtures among other games were sold out almost instantaneously and that well over 700,000 match tickets had been purchased by March 2019, gives one an austere indication of the spectacular rise in football fan's interest in this summer's competition taking place in France.

Despite the Black Queens of Ghana being amiss at France 2019 just like the Black Stars missed Russia 2018, bilingual international journalist Angela Akua Asante promises to bring Ghanaian audiences a piece of France to Ghana through her weekly series entitled "Fabulous France with Triple A". Her adventures will be gracing your screens soon on Metro TV, this June, and July.

Triple A's CRD7 World Cup documentary of her escapade in three Russian cities at the FIFA World Cup a year ago -- one which received a nomination in the 2018 AIPS Awards' African category -- helped to debunk negative stereotypes about the Russian people and their rich culture. Likewise this time in France, something new and truly revealing could well be in the pipes. On her expectations as a freelancing journalist, Angela Akua Asante did not hold back with her ace recipes and the palatable dishes she promises to serve to the Ghanaian populace and beyond:

“This "Fabulous France" series is a massive independent media project and I'm relishing it. My 11-year career exists for moments like these.

“Women's Football is on a spectacular rise. If you've been living under a rock, you just need to check the top-notch ads released for France 2019; the huge surge in match ticket sales... numbers don't lie, you know.

"And just because Ghana didn't qualify for the tournament or just because the men's National Team will be involved in the AFCON later in June does not mean we, journalists, must deprive our current and future generations of aspiring female footballers and sports reporters from the positive influence that this groundbreaking 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France is creating globally.

“I'm excited to bring France 2019's amazing vibes to Ghanaian audiences, live from six of the nine French host cities.

“It's going to be an exhilarating ride so fasten your seatbelts and get to know and live the vibrant French culture and Women's World Cup fever through my lens on Metro TV and my social media pages."
