A 15-year old Ghanaian girl with autism, Nana Yaa Ohenewa Kuffuor, declared her intentions of becoming a top model in September 2017.
Despite her challenges with autism, Nana Yaa chased her dreams and has since broken barriers to become a brand ambassador for Verna Mineral Water along with Maame Bema Baffour Awuah and Yacob Tete-Manon, also girls with autism.
With a beautiful broad-cheeked face, arches of a perfect eyebrow linked from opposite directions to a pointed nose that sits seamlessly just above a heart-shaped lip, Nana Yaa is a true definition of African beauty.
Nana Yaa is changing the narrative about people with autism.
Mary Amoah Kuffour, the mother of Nana Yaa, describes her daughter as “a cute angel”.
Here are some photos of Nana Yaa:
