Growing up, Sara Yaa Nyamekye Bempah (pictured) wanted to be an actress, a career her parents disapproved of. Instead, her parents wanted her to become a lawyer, and while she attempted to chart that path, as fate would have it, it wouldn’t work out.

Following her passions of media and entertainment, Bempah has been a host and presenter for the last three years, interviewing the likes of Face2Face Africa founders Sandra Appiah and Isaac Babu-Boateng; leader of Ghanaian Gospel group NO Tribe, Nacy; radio and TV host Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD), actress Nana Ama McBrown, actor Kojo Nkansah popularly known as “Lil Win,” and ace saxophonist Steve Bedi,among other influential names.
Born in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, to Ghanaian parents, Bempah left the University of Waterloo after two and half years to attend Algonquin College in Canada and graduated in December 2013 with a degree in Business Marketing.
Bempah describes herself as an ambitious, goal-oriented, focused, and jovial person who strongly believes in following one’s dreams and living it. She also believes that “passions and dreams should not be pushed away and looked at as hobbies or goals that may never be accomplished. Instead, each day should be used to working toward making those dreams a reality because those dreams can and will be accomplished.“
In the coming months, her new show will premiere on YouTube, “The show is aimed toward inspiring like-minded individuals in order to help encourage the betterment of the continent of Africa. Through intellectual and interactive discussion, the show hopes to spark new ideas and encourage change.”
Hoping to be one of the top media presenters in the world in the near future, Miss Bempah is motivated by the exploits of her mother, Gifty Gyamfi, CEO of GUBA Awards Dentaa Amoateng, Prophet Dr. Cindy Trimm, Sandra Appiah, and talk show host Oprah Winfrey. Her family and her love for God also inspires her greatly.
