Today’s Faces of Sickle Cell Disease: Jennifer Nsenkyire
Jennifer Nsenkyire, who is originally from Ghana, came to the United States in 1995 seeking a better life for herself and her family. She earned a bachelor’s degree in finance. She now holds a full-time accounting job in a private firm. In her spare time, she enjoys walking several miles a day.
Unimaginable hurdle: Nsenkyire has suffered from the complications of SCD for as long as she can remember. As a teenager, she experienced excruciating pain for days at a time and had to be hospitalized at least once a month due to her condition.
