About Akua
I am a senior at Columbia University double-majoring in Psychology and Urban Studies with a Pre-Law designation. My ultimate career goal is to become a social justice lawyer and then go on to become a judge.
Teaching Experience
I have been a part of Youth for Debate for four years, where I stress the skillset of an effective debater, teaching middle and high school students how to analyze issues from two opposing sides, formulate cogent arguments, conduct in-depth research, critique the claims of their opponent, and quickly devise rebuttals. During this time, I have helped to develop lessons plans and troubleshoot problems with our coaches' classrooms.
