She excelled in her education, pursuing various certifications and degrees in communication, journalism, and sales.

Her passion for writing and teaching led her to lecture at the Ghana Institute of Journalism, where she inspired many with her dedication and cooperative approach.

Nana Ama’s love for fashion led her to establish a clothing line, Mehudzi, which reflected her artistic expression of culture and style.

She was a compassionate and principled individual who valued orderliness and timeliness. Her Catholic faith was central to her life, and she worshiped regularly at St. James Catholic Church in Accra and maintained her faith during her studies in Lithuania.

Tragically, Nana Ama fell ill and passed away on May 20, 2024, before completing her doctorate degree at Vytautas Magnus University. She is survived by her mother and two siblings.

Her memory will be cherished by the many lives she touched with her kindness, compassion, and love.

Her legacy will be celebrated, and her beauty, intellect, and spirit will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace, Nana Ama.

Those we love don’t go away,

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard, but always near,

Still loved, still missed, and very dear.
