Akosua Beoke

Akosua Beoke’s father sacrificed his own well-paying job in Ghana when he moved to Greensboro, North Carolina, seven years ago to provide his children with more opportunities. Beoke was recently accepted into 24 universities around the country, and her father's sacrifice seems to have paid off. She will attend Columbia University as a Kluge Scholar in the fall.
