A Little About AKUA
Akua Soadwa is a founder of Gye Nyame Empowerment Project (GNEP), and its mission is to provide tools and conversations that affirm positive life outcomes for people of Pan-African decent and their communities. GNEP has reached over 700 girls and women throughout the New York City area and Kingston, Jamaica, through its annual Sista-2-Sista Youth Summits. In addition, GNEP is launching its first program that specifically aims to empower boys and men this fall – the Brotha-2-Brotha Youth Summit.
Akua is also the Founder of Let’s Pursue You, a self-sustainability company that helps women have juicier relationships, careers and money by falling in love with themselves from the inside out. Their approach behind their products and services is grounded in Mahatma Gandhi’s quote: “Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.” Let’s Pursue You creates spaces for women to get real with themselves and stop settling for their reasons and justifications for not having juicy lives that they love!
Through her work Akua has reached over 1,000 people from across the globe through her self-love movement and she is creating a movement of action-oriented and responsible beings that ascribe to her belief that “we are a conversation and an action away from having everything we want.”
Akua has an extensive background in creating movements, organizing people and structures, getting people into action, identifying the source of individual or corporate ineffectiveness, and she has an innovative outlook on how urban planning should be redefined.
