Ghanaian born German, Adwoa Tima Awuah, aged 22, has reached the finals of the esteemed Miss Germany awards, showcasing her commitment to social impact.
The Miss Germany pageant, having transitioned from a traditional beauty contest to recognizing women dedicated to social responsibility and community enhancement, has brought Adwoa’s efforts to the forefront.
At the helm of the Yemiyiefo Foundation (YFM Ghana), Adwoa is actively involved in a social project in Ghana, aiming to assist young girls in rural areas to complete their Junior High School (JHS) education and seamlessly transition to Senior High School (SHS).
Since its inception in 2021, the Yemiyiefo Foundation has granted 15 full scholarships to girls in underprivileged communities, facilitating their educational journey through JHS.
In addition to the scholarship programs, the foundation has orchestrated workshops featuring diverse life skills programs, impacting over 1000 Junior High School students in the Eastern and Central Regions of Ghana.
Currently, Adwoa is on a mission to uplift the lives of African immigrants in Germany. Her focus lies in providing psychosocial services to aid their integration into German society.
This impactful initiative has earned her a coveted spot among the final 10 candidates in the Miss Germany competition, distinguishing her as the youngest and sole black participant. The grand finale is scheduled to take place on February 24 at Europapark, Germany.
Sharing her aspirations, Adwoa expressed, “As a former migrant from Ghana to Germany, I know how challenging migration and integration can be, especially without sufficient support.
“My mission at Miss Germany is to create more empathy for migration and integration with a documentary. I also work at a psychosocial center to support migrants, especially the African community.
