Providing equitable services for children and their families through healthcare.
Born in the bustling city of Lomé, Togo, Yawa embarked on a life-changing journey when she immigrated to America with her family at the tender age of two. A mere three years later, her parents divorced, and tragedy struck with the heartbreaking loss of her baby sister. Unbeknownst to those around her, Yawa silently grappled with anxiety, carrying the weight of her emotions hidden within. Despite these challenges, she found solace and purpose in the power of education, recognizing its transformative potential. Yet, an underlying uneasiness held her voice captive, restricting her from fully embracing her true potential. It was through transformative experiences, supportive communities, and meaningful relationships that Yawa discovered the strength to confront her anxiety and adopt a mindset of purpose and positivity. Today, she radiates optimism and firmly believes in transcending limitations, understanding that our mindset shapes our growth and determines the possibilities that lie ahead. In her roles as Student Body President, Vice President of Brown Girls Big Things, and Youth Leader, Yawa extends compassion and support to those in need, lending a helping hand to uplift individuals and foster a sense of belonging. Her journey stands as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, inspiring others to overcome adversity, embrace growth, and carve their path towards a brighter future filled with compassion and boundless potential.
