Adwoa Gyimah-Brempong

Adwoa Gyimah-Brempong (@adwoa_g) is a producer, editor, and multimedia storyteller who is deeply committed to co-creating story. As a member of the 2019 Conference Advisory Group, she is currently collaborating directly with Third Coast staff to envision & create Thursday Meetups: an afternoon of community-based gatherings that will kick off this year’s Conference.

Continuing to live up to a disapproving kindergarten report card, Adwoa has trouble sitting still. She has lived and worked on five continents; her heart is split between West Africa and Oakland. She loves immersive multimedia projects, oversized tropical plants, and tinned fish. Adwoa is often seen in cowboy boots and a neon dress, headed for the nearest airport.

Adwoa is an alumna of Mills College and New College of Florida, as well as the VONA/Voices and NextGen Radio fellowships. She is currently a producer on The Record at KUOW in Seattle. Check out more of Adwoa's work here.
