If there’s one thing I know, travel breaks down barriers. And as you meet people from around the world and experience different cultures, you remember that we are all one human race.

What’s happening with PeaceJam in Ghana is truly something special. Each time I go back, I see how the reach of PeaceJam has grown and how it’s changed the lives of each child who’s gotten involved. Last time I was in Ghana, I was actually crowned a traditional chief — my official name, Nene Kwesi Mateu Tsu I. And since it’d been a couple of months since I’d last visited, it was the perfect time to circle back to Accra and Krobo to see what the PeaceJammers were up to and how Krobo was doing. I even got to meet someone very special — the president of Ghana!

Check out the video below to see my return to PeaceJam Ghana and Krobo as a traditional chief:
