Linda Boamah Asante, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the NGO-Yaa Animah Memorial Foundation, met with her mentees for an insightful event on Sunday (5 November). 

This gathering was part of her initiative to empower and mentor young individuals in order to create a stronger generation of women and children, contributing to the development of a robust Ghana, in line with the foundation’s motto, “Strong Children, Strong Women, Strong Ghana.”

Asante strongly believes in empowering her generation, particularly women and children, to create a world where they can thrive without limitations.

Linda Boamah Asante, a true pioneer in every aspect, shared her journey from modest origins to her current position in the energy sector. Her narrative exemplifies resilience, determination, and steadfast dedication to excellence.

Mrs. Asante recounted her journey from humble beginnings, highlighting the challenges she faced while emphasizing her unwavering commitment to education, personal development, and leadership. She reflected on her formative years, characterised by a strong work ethic and an unwavering determination to pursue her goals, regardless of obstacles.

During her academic journey, Asante emerged as a dynamic and proactive student leader, actively participating in the activities of the Students’ Representative Council at the University of Cape Coast.


She was a part of the inaugural executive batch of the University Students Association Ghana and the National Union of Ghana Students, breaking barriers in student leadership with her innovative ideas and unwavering commitment. These pivotal years marked the beginning of her display of leadership skills, laying the foundation for her future career and political standing.

Transitioning from student leadership to corporate and professional leadership posed its own challenges. In the male-dominated energy sector, Asante encountered substantial resistance and bias. However, she did not allow gender bias to intimidate her; instead, she used it as motivation to strive even harder.

Her exceptional ability to propose innovative ideas and her steadfast commitment to excellence propelled her rapid advancement. Her dedication and strategic mindset distinguished her. She overcame challenges and has ascended through the ranks, now standing as a respected figure in the energy sector of the country.

Additionally, she has made history by becoming the first female deputy chief executive officer of the National Petroleum Authority of Ghana.

Asante has continually attributed her achievements to her steadfast faith. God has consistently been her cornerstone and top priority when making decisions. Her faith has steered her course and given her the resilience to conquer obstacles.

Asante’s story is truly remarkable due to her dedication to inspiring others. She consistently mentors and encourages aspiring leaders, particularly young women, to emulate her, demonstrating that with determination and a steadfast commitment to excellence, anyone can achieve great success.

Asante’s speech resonates with the powerful message that obstacles should be viewed as stepping stones to success. Her journey exemplifies the possibility of rising above adversity and making a lasting impact.

By treating her mentees to a lunch and games night, she not only imparts wisdom but also fosters a sense of camaraderie and support. Through her actions and words, she instills the belief that success is attainable through dedication and faith, guiding individuals on the path to excellence.

Internal auditor Mr. Addae-Boahen Moses, a resource person, was invited to speak on “Empowering Women in Leadership Development.”

He asserted that empowering women in leadership development helps to remove barriers and inequalities, create an inclusive and equitable environment, and contribute to a more just and equitable society.

The mentorship program concluded with a lunch and game night for the mentees.

It was moderated by Miss Twisty Ampofowaa and Miss Rafiatu Acheworon.
