Nancy Mma-Ngaare Mba

Student Representative, Talloires Network Steering Committee

Nancy Mma-Ngaare Mba recently graduated with a first class in BSc. Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Ashesi University in June 2023. Despite being an Engineering Student, her versatility extends beyond the technical realm, allowing her to excel in various domains. Known for her forward-thinking problem-solving skills and possessing a deep-rooted passion for the transformative potential of technology, she is recognized for her ability to effect meaningful change. Nancy is the first recipient of the prestigious 2023 Ashesi Presidential Award which is the highest award a student can get at Ashesi University. She has similarly been awarded by the Ashesi University Mastercard Foundation for her transformative leadership and the indelible mark she has made on the entire Ashesi community and beyond. Leading the way as the founder of Magnificent Smiles Foundation (MSmiles), a youth-centered startup employing a mobilization strategy through undergraduate student clubs and associations, she fosters collaboration among a diverse group of undergraduate students to deliver essential support to disadvantaged individuals at orphanages and foster homes in Ghana. With a strong passion for research and knowledge generation, she has actively pursued opportunities to engage in impactful research endeavors. Her involvement in the partnership project between Ashesi and McGill University, where she worked as a Summer Research Assistant, allowed her to delve into the study of experiential exposures that boost entrepreneurship among Mastercard Foundation Scholars. In her new role as a student representative of the Talloiries Network, she remains open to forging connections and engaging in collaborations that have the potential to create a positive and lasting impact.
