Afua Nkansah-Asamoah

Afua, originally from Accra, Ghana, now resides in London, UK. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Law (LLB) from SOAS University of London. Beyond her legal background, Afua wears multiple hats: Scrum Master, Product Owner professional, Safeguarding Lead, and aspiring Barrister. Her passion lies in collaborating with like-minded individuals to address Africa’s challenges across education, art, heritage, energy, and investments.

Noteworthy moments in Afua’s journey include her appointment by the Ghanaian Presidential office as a member of the Committee on the Future of Ghana’s Museums and Cultural Heritage in 2020. In the United Kingdom, she serves as one of the first youth members on the Advisory Committee of the Government Art Collection since 2022. Additionally, Afua plays a pivotal role in privacy management within her function.

As a dedicated volunteer at the Precious Fountain Foundation (PFF), Afua contributes significantly. She facilitates the PFF International Leadership Bootcamp (ILB) and spearheads the African Leadership Forum project in collaboration with FORWARD UK. Her interests span art, heritage, hiking, and youth development. Afua’s introspective nature fuels her passion for journaling and writing. She firmly upholds integrity and honesty, striving to embody these values.

Her favorite quote, attributed to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, resonates deeply: “The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them. If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.” Afua draws inspiration not only from distant trailblazers but also from her close-knit circle of friends and family who constantly challenge the status quo.
