PERSONAL IMPACT STORY
The Never- Ending Cycle of LearningWatch Video Though it felt like 2020 had dealt us all a hard blow, Beacon of Excellence, Amma Odamea Amoako decided to look beyond the circumstances and to give herself a chance at making an impact by using her social media presence. She had been learning new things and decided to make conscious efforts to engage intellectually on LinkedIn to share some of her thoughts and new ideas. Her new voice landed her spot on an international webinar as a panelist on TecTalk’s “The Black Women Matter” show with Kwamara Thompson a renowned Black Women Activist in the USA. (Read her full experience on her blog at theodamea.wordpress.com). Recently, Amma embraced another opportunity to become a Fellow at the Federation of International Gender and Human Rights (FIGHR). She was selected as one of 60 fellows selected out of over 450 young people who applied worldwide. The fellows are to work on a maternal healthcare policy to be implemented by the United Nations. Today, Amma stands with many other young Fellows from different parts of the world who are daring to make impact on the global scene!
In 2007, Erinn fulfilled her promise to her grandmother as she relocated to Ghana to continue her scholar activism. She first taught Africana Studies at Ashesi University (then later at Webster University) before taking a sharp turn into international development work at the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET), a pan-African think tank that advises African governments on how to transform their economies.
Starting as a writer/editor, Erinn was soon promoted to Strategic Partnerships Advisor to the think tank’s president. There, she got an up-close look at the role of governance and economic policy in the transformation of African societies. She met African heads of state and worked closely with African ministries of finance as well as international development players at the World Bank, the MasterCard Foundation, European Union and other donor institutions.
Still searching for the most effective path to the transformation of Africa’s narrative, Erinn’s Christian faith and writing skills afforded her yet another pathway to contribute to African consciousness-raising and personal transformation as the book editor for one of Africa’s most influential religious personalities. Having edited more than 13 Christian publications, Erinn has conducted a systematic exploration of faith as a powerful and effective pathway to greater selfdiscovery and personal transformation through Christ. Today, Erinn brings all of her knowledge and experiences to her role as a Mindset Transformation Coach and the founder of Infinite Potential Africa Ltd, a personal development company that blends personal growth approaches with African & Diaspora studies, psychology, and faith to help clients live at their highest potential.
