Ernest Okyere-Twum


I am a Pastor, Counselor and Youth worker working among international students in the city of Nantes, France. I have been working with young people for over a decade now. I am very passionate about young people and helping them have a fulfilled life. I run seminars and training for young people in the areas of human development, marriage, career choices, peer counselling, social media and recently mental health.

My area of interest include peer counselling, social media, mental health and Christian ethics. I am currently working on a research project together with Prof. Farzaneh PAHLAVAN of Paris Descartes University, under whose direction I will be writing my doctoral thesis. The focus of the research is to investigate the impact of internet use and video game on the executive function of adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD.

I am married to Makafui and we are blessed with a beautiful daughter called Hadassah.
