Asantewaa was raised in Accra, Ghana along with two sisters and parents, who have always supported her pursuit of education. Asantewaa attended Archbishop Porter Girls’ School in Sekondi-Takoradi, Ghana. Waking up at dawn each day helped her learn effective time management and self-discipline. Her academic prowess, combined with the support of dedicated teachers and good friends, helped her pass her final high school exams.
Through her high school robotics team, Asantewaa learned about Ashesi’s Innovation Experience (AIX), a summer program centered on engineering and design thinking. Her experience at AIX inspired her to apply to Ashesi. Not only was Asantewaa accepted, but she received a scholarship. Today, Asantewaa is making the most of her time at Ashesi – participating in several clubs, making new friends, and spending leisure time learning about technology.
Asantewaa has a passion to help Africa, especially her native Ghana. After graduation, she plans to utilize her electrical engineering degree to promote Ghana’s development.
