Our Board Members are the backbone of our organisation- they stay involved with ASAH operations from all over the country and keep us running like a well-oiled machine! Some members of the board have been with us since 2016 and continue to lead and guide ASAH to new heights every year! Meet the Board:
My name is Cecilia Sion and I’m currently studying Business Administration at the VU university. Being of African heritage I was always curious to find out more about where we are originally from. Having visited several African countries has given me so many insights into our history. “My African Dream” is one whereby people of African decent and African Diaspora all over the world unite on a economical, social and political level and go back to Africa.
Hi! My name is Berty Bannor and I’m currently studying law and philosophy. I was born in Ghana but raised in Holland.
In my opinion, Africa is a continent full of riches, history and culture. It has been underestimated for far too long. That’s why my African dream is to be part of a change where Africa is seen as the attractive mainland full of opportunities and great people.
My African dream is unity in diversity. I believe that we are at the breakthrough of independent development as a continent. We’ll ensure that if we unify with each other but not lose our identity as an individual during the proces. For now, my part in this dream lies within ASAH. It is my duty to promote our society as a whole to students, and learn from other cultures while doing so. It is time to bring my dream to reality.
My name is Dwayne Ansah and I’m from Amsterdam, the Netherlands by way of Atwima Yabi, Ghana. I’m currently studying law at Erasmus University in Rotterdam, and the secretary of ASAH.
My African Dream is one of a realized African continent, offering endless possibilities to explore and enjoy life. Growing up abroad, Africa, and especially the Ghanaian way of life of my family who still lives there, became another home for me: a warm – pun intended, but then again how funny can a joke be if I have to explain it – place where I can non-ironically enjoy community and togetherness. It may sound sappy, but my African Dream gives me a glimpse of what should be.
