In this outstanding episode, Ama shares with us her unique upbringing and even more unique path to changing the lives of many through her work and children’s book series.
Ama Karikari-Yawson earned a BA from Harvard University, an MBA from the Wharton School and a JD from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Her unique understanding of social issues, business and the law has enabled her to become a relevant voice on issues as varied as diversity, sexual violence, and personal empowerment.
She is a frequent contributor to publications such as The Huffington Post and The Atlantic. In 2013, a painful experience with bullying inspired her to write her best-selling fable about difference, Sunne’s Gift. Ms. Yawson became so personally invested in spreading the book’s message of healing and harmony, that she quit her six-figure job as a securities lawyer to become a full-time, author, storyteller, speaker, and edutainer. Her life-changing workshops and training sessions incorporate storytelling, drama, dance, history, cutting edge psychological research and legal analysis in order to truly propel participants towards healthier and more successful lives.
