THIS 22-YEARS OLD GHANAIAN WOMAN IS SETTING OUT TO CREATE A GENERATION OF ACCOMPLISHED AFRICAN WOMEN

A year ago, Diana Wilson, a young, ambitious and incredibly passionate first-generation Ghanaian-American woman created Yielding Accomplished African Women (Yaa W). Yaa W is named after and in the spirit of Yaa Asantewaa, a Ghanaian feminist heroine, Queen mother and warrior.

Yielding Accomplished African Women is Ghana’s first finance and technology accelerator for women with an objective to transform the professional lives of young women across the country.

Yaa W is also redefining women’s power by urging them to take on new challenges and conquer personal goals through #YaaSheWill; a digital storytelling campaign that focuses on inspiring women and men to recover, reimagine, and replace the set narratives and scope of a woman’s capabilities.

The campaign is calling on everyone to use the #YaaSheWill hashtag to contribute, promote, and celebrate women of the world as a direct rebuttal to histories of injustice and the present-day inequity.

Founder and CEO, Diana Wilson, explained the revolution which is pushing women to believe they are the curators of their own destiny.
