Stacy Amewoyi Interview

Thank you Stacy Amewoyi for talking to us

01. What we would like to know is how it all happened, from being an orphan, a woman plus black, In a “men’s” world, Where did you find the strength to pull through not only for yourself but those you’ve helped along the way?

Ans: I will say its all by the divine grace and blessings from God almighty. 

02. The Stacy M Foundation please tell us more about this amazing initiative, We know it caters to orphans, widows and the less privileged but how has it exactly change people lives?

Ans: Stacy M Foundation has been putting smiles on the face of thousands of people over the years. We made sure we give back to society by donations, engaging the youth with social and moral lifestyle and also giving them a skill that will support them and their family. We can boldly say we have been able to change the lives of many young people who are happily making Stacy M Foundation and themselves proud.

03.The Anaya School complex is a cosmetology school tell us more about it and it’s impact on the youth?

Ans: The impact on the youth has been awesome over the years. We have had some brilliant young people pass through our institution to be great entrepreneurs today. The Anaya School Complex was focused on one particular area in Ghana which we were able to achieve our main massively. We decided to take our agenda to the next level by covering the whole Ghana with our aim of empowering the youth through skill training by which covers the entire 16 regions in Ghana and I must say our initiative is doing well so far.

04.Stacy your truly an inspiration for everyone everywhere, What’s your take on our “New Normal” post pandemic. As one of Africa’s biggest entrepreneurs, What would you say is the next frontier in entrepreneurialism?

Ans: Well, Per our current situation as far as this pandemic is concerned, I think we should all come together and make entrepreneurship more attractive. We need more mission-driven, talented entrepreneurs like myself to build / create more opportunities for beneficiaries. I believe that, By 2040 Africa will have a larger workforce than China or India, and overlooked development opportunities. 

05.For entrepreneurs that have low self-esteem, what words of encouragement would you say to them?

Ans: The word “impossible” is one thing that I don’t have in my books. Sometimes I want to give up on certain things because I think it’s too much for me to handle then I quickly remember why I started what I am about to give up on. These thoughts ignite my strength and hope to achieve more than what I expect. I will like to tell entrepreneurs to consider why they started what they are giving up on and what they intend to achieve. Giving up is not the solution at all.

06. Stacy we can tell you’re a woman deeply rooted in God, What would you say was your biggest lesson from God?

Ans: Life

07. Your a woman of many skills it’s amazing from beauty to fashion to philanthropy to author how do you fit it all in your life and make it seem so easy?

Ans: Well sometimes I amaze myself because I really find it hard to understand why I do all this and do it well. All I can say is, its God’s grace and favor. This thing has been like passion to me so its kind of easy to get my hands around anything I do.

08. Going to America was that the end goal from the start and the #BlackLivesMatter protests which we’re sure you’ve experienced 1st hand, What’s your take on this serious injustice that keeps failing people of color?

Ans: I wouldn’t say going to America was the end goal because I gave my entire life to God to lead me wherever he wants. I could have stayed in America for a day and move to another country the next day. #BlackLivesMatter, On behalf of my West African brothers and sisters I apologize to all the African Americans who’ve been belittled by our people. I have noticed instances that both Africans and African Americans have talk down on each other. I always make it a point to speak against that. This animosity amongst us has deep roots!! I don’t know when it began but for the longest there has been some type of hatred that has widen the gap between us. Pulling us father apart. I simply want to draw our attention to the fact that lineage wise we are all of African ancestry.  There will never be peace or unity if we keep focusing on our differences. Yes, we all have our own struggles but We must all help support each other’s movements. It’s Black Lives Matter not Just African American Lives or African lives. The common denominator is our skin and heritage!! It’s sad how people are saying that it’s an African problem so they as African Americans won’t support them and vice versa. Do you think the cops or oppressors care if you are African or African Americans? The answer is no. When black lives are being taken and oppressed due to whatever the situation may be, let us realize that it a black problem. It’s about time we stop shifting blame and stand up together.  We already have bigger issues to focus on instead worrying about ethnic differences. Shame to all the Africans who’ve made African Americans felt less African because they weren’t born in Africa. Shame to all the aunties and uncles, mommies and daddies who talk down on African Americans and call them all kinds of names. Shame to all the African Americans who didn’t want to associate themselves with Africans because they think we are savages and uncivilized. Shame to all who didn’t clam their African heritage till black panther came out. I remember how majority of you said wakanda forever yet you place yourselves above us. Please I’m begging you, don’t pick and choose whose side you want to support. A black problem is an all-black problem. From now on if you put a BLM in your bio you are saying All BLACK LIVES MATTER that also goes for everything we face as a collective.

09.  Being honored for all of your hard work on Mr. CNN’s 3G Magazine stage is God’s way to appreciate all you’ve given, What does it mean to you to be an ambassador for Mr. CNN’s 3G Magazine

Ans: It means a lot to me. The excitement and joy in me can’t be described. I believe my hard work, determination and passion for whatever I do earned me that. Whenever I see my citation, am poised to do more just so I get recognized more as well. I am currently the Brand Ambassador for 3G Magazine hosted by Mr. CNN and also currently won the 19th Annual Ghanaian- Canadian Achievement Awards and was honored at Canada and this year’s edition of 3G Awards in New York & Won the author of the year awards. I received citations from top brands and institutions in Ghana and USA for my humanitarian support.

10.We would personally want you to rest for a full year, But in the near future what’s next for Stacy Amewoyi?

Ans: Stacy Amewoyi is aiming at owning shelters and recue centers across Africa for the homeless and less privileged ones. This I can’t do alone hence I will want us to unite as Africans. We need more mission-driven, talented entrepreneurs like myself to build achieve this purpose. Am always open to received donors and help from across the world just so we keep the spirit high in achieving great things for Africa.
