For the past decade, Ghanaian entrepreneur, author and philanthropist, Stacy Amewoyi has, via her Stacy M Foundation embarked on extensive job creation and vocational training exercises, as well as regular donations to folks on the streets of New Jersey and across Ghana.
For her contribution to the progressive rise and empowerment of the less-privileged, Amewoyi has been awarded the special Role Model award by the 19th annual Ghanaian-Canadian Achievement Awards.
”I receive this award as a token of an Appreciation on behalf of anyone who’s into charity works and foundational organizations to them I would like to say that, let this be a source of encouragement and empowerment to everyone who’s also into the charity entities,” she said upon receiving the award.
Additionally, she picked the award for Entrepreneurship Excellence as the 3G Author of the Year at the 2019 instalment of the annual 3G Awards.
”I am extremely honoured to be receiving such an important award, 3G Author of the Year. I am earnestly grateful for the recognition I have received for my work because I am very sure that every other nominee for this award was as capable if not more, of winning this award,” she added.
Amewoyi is also the author of ‘The King’s Choice.’
She references her personal struggles as an orphan who broke forces of failure to climb the success chain by finding comfort and building a strong enterprise and coveted brand for herself. She started as a beauty queen in her teen years, becoming a vixen in videos for top Ghanaian acts including VIP, 4X4, Pat Thomas, Dada KD among others. Her willingness to explore every angle of the entertainment industry saw her exhibit her unique natural talents in movies with Agya Koo and more, before finally departing to United States, where she’s lived and worked for the past decade.
Earlier this year, she donated items including clothes, drinks, foods and more to the homeless in New Jersey. She has scheduled a similar gesture in Ghana this December.
