Ama Dankwah
Ama graduated from Methodist University College Ghana in 2013, and is currently studying for an M.S. degree in Computer Science. Last summer, she interned at Verizon as a Data Analyst, and is looking forward to becoming a Data Scientist in the near future. Ama believes in an Africa with "home made entrepreneurs", "home made scientists" , "home made technologists", in fact, "home made everything", and she knows this can be done by sharing experiences and helping others reach their potential.

Ama has always been very interested in education development for students in underprivileged communities (rural areas), and in sharing her experiences with her peers. She founded ARAE (Aiding Rural Area Education) in 2010 to help bridge the gap between rural and urban education in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region.

She is a Fante girl from Gomoa-Fetteh in the Central Region of Ghana. And, oh, she loves hot bread with butter and chilled coke!

Emma Shamo
Emma wants to live in a world filled with innovative businesses and people with solutions, books that come bundled with chocolate (or kenkey), and a force field around her keyboard that repels pets and her crazy friends. As a J.D. candidate with over a quarter of a century years of existence, she has a background in Political Science, Linguistics and Classical History. Emma also enjoys volunteering with various organizations.

Emma believes that Peer Connect Ghana is the platform that will provide Ghanaians with the exposure, mentorship, understanding and desire they need to pursue their educational and career goals. When she's not buried in work, you can find her enjoying time with friends or alone while exploring various new interests & sight-seeing.

Although analytical and sometimes reserved, Emma likes to have a good laugh and likes to hear good jokes or funny stories. They also say she's a tease- but why don't you find out for yourself?! Aside pursuing her career goals,Emma hopes to learn how to play a musical instrument and / or to dance!! Lol.
