Miss Selasi Ama Domi-Kuwornu, a 21-year-old final-year student at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana, has been adjudged Ms Geek Africa at the just-ended Ms Geek Africa competition.
The competition, which was held last Friday in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe serves as a platform for female students pursuing courses in science and technology to display original problem-solving ideas.
Seven young ladies from Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, Benin, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Niger presented innovative, achievable and scalable solutions to combat electronic pilfering in Africa and beyond.
Ms Selasi’s victory follows her win at the 2019 Miss Geek Ghana competition which was organized by the Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation.
Ghana’s representative gave a presentation on an offline system that enables illiterates, physically challenged, unserved and underserved communities to be able to effortlessly perform financial services without third-party assistance named Kasa-Cash.
The Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation, on October 9, 2019, launched the Ms Geek Ghana Competition to empower girls in the field of ICT.
