NKYINKYIM - Twisting

Symbol of Initiative, Dynamism and Versatility

The symbol of the Nkyinkyim  depicts the twists and turns in the journey of one's life. The idea behind this design is based on the proverb  “Ɔbrakwanyɛnkyinkyimii,” meaning “Life’s journey is twisted.” The journey through life can be tortuous and one to be versatile and resilient to survive. You must be prepared and determined to handle whatever life throws at you, if you are to succeed in life.
