To say Sally Nuamah is impressive would be a severe understatement. She’s a pre-doctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, the recipient of the Princeton Prize award for improvement in race relations, a Gates Millennium scholar, and a PhD Candidate at Northwestern University. While she was interning for former senator, now president, Barack Obama in 2009 as his health policy intern, she began collecting footage for her documentary on education in Ghana later called “HerStory.” Sally Nuamah is no stranger to the importance of education, and she wanted to explore the experiences of women in Ghana who had to overcome so much simply to get their education. Her Agenda caught up with Sally to discuss how she views education on a global scale, “HerStory” and how it’s never too soon to give back.
