An African City’s MaameYaa Boafo On ‘Being The Real Me Without Apology’

MaameYaa Boafo is largely known for her leading role as “NanaYaa” in the popular web series, An African City where she stars as a young, beautiful and successful New York professional who returns to Ghana to create a life for herself. While she lights up the screen as a talented thespian, she brings an air of sophistication that comes with being as cultured of an individual as she is. The daughter of two Ghanaian humanitarians who has lived and traveled around the world, Boafo is no stranger to a life of adventure as well as passionately and relentlessly pursuing one’s purpose.

In this inspirational TEDx talk, she shares her journey all the way from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where she spent her childhood to the highs and lows that come with pursuing one’s passion.
