Carly Fiorina is one of the candidates running for the Republican presidential nomination in the United States of America. If, you're a strong follower of the US elections, you probably know at least one other thing about her: that she once ran Hewlett-Packard — and was fired from the company. But did you know she attended high school in … Ghana?

In her memoir, “Tough Choices,” Carly Fiorina describes herself in her early years as “perpetually the new kid in class.”

She writes that she went to elementary school in New York, Connecticut and California. Junior high was in California and England. Ghana’s one of many places she went to school.

For high school, it was Ghana, California and North Carolina. “In the course of all this moving around, I learned a lot about people and a lot about change,” she writes in her book.

Fiorina, 61, was born in Austin, Texas, and had a peripatetic childhood thanks to her law-professor father’s career. A farfetched thought, but maybe in the nearest future Ghanaians might have a claim on the education of USA's president should she win.
