Ekua Awotwi Software & Mechanical Engineer

About me

My name is Ekua T. Awotwi. Born in California, I am originally from Ghana and Nigeria. I am a student at Stanford University pursing a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Computer Science. 

An autodidact at heart, I love creating things with different skills and technologies and I love to learn from people. In my spare time, I enjoy playing basketball, learning jazz on the piano, and eating good food in good company. I am interested in working on projects that involve the intersections of software engineering, manufacturing, social impact and centering marginalized narratives. I hope to use my engineering background and work with communities of color to develop technology that can empower individuals from under-resourced communities by providing resources and opportunities for them to support themselves and give back to their communities.
