Accra, Dec.4, GNA – Mrs Stacy Amewoyi, a Ghanaian Entrepreneur has been honoured with two humanitarian awards in the United States (US) for her benevolent gestures and contribution to the welfare of humanity.
She was awarded the “Special Role Model Award” by the 19th annual Ghanaian-Canadian Achievement Awards for her contribution to the progressive rise and empowerment of the less-privileged.
She also picked the award for “Entrepreneurship Excellence” as the 3G Author of the Year at the 2019 instalment of the annual 3G Awards, all in the US.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, Mrs Amewoyi said: “Being the shoulder for those with least or nothing in life to lean on comfortably is my passion. I therefore, made the vow with God to channel part of my hard income in the harsh cold and winter weathers of the United States to society.”
Therefore, for the past decade, she had solely focused on creating jobs for people through the ‘Stacy M’ Foundation by offering free vocational training for needy and vulnerable youth groups, and donating to persons on the streets of New Jersey and in Ghana.
“I received this award as a token of an appreciation on behalf of anyone who’s into charity works. I urge charitable foundations and organisations to let this be a source of encouragement and empowerment to them to do more to contribute to the development of humanity,” she said.
Speaking on the reception of the 3D Author award, she expressed gratitude to the organisers for the recognition, especially as all nominees were equally capable of winning the award, adding that, the honour would encourage her to do more.
Mrs Amewoyi, also authored a book titled, “the King's Choice,” which became a best-seller, winning her several awards.
The Entrepreneur made reference to her personal struggles in life as an orphan who broke every gravitational force of failure to climb the success chain by finding comfort and building a strong enterprise and coveted brand for herself.
Mrs Amewoyi started as a beauty queen, winning a crown in her teens and becoming a vixen in videos for top Ghanaian artistes like VIP, 4X4, Pat Thomas, and Dada KD.
Her willingness to explore different angles of the entertainment industry saw her exhibit unique natural talents in Ghanaian movies, before finally departing to the United States, where she was residing.
Earlier this year, she donated items such as clothes, drinks, and foods to the homeless in New Jersey to enable them to feel belonging.
She said it was her plan to repeat the gesture in Ghana this December to put smiles on the faces of the less privileged in the society.
