Often described as a promising young lawyer, TV host, entrepreneur and philanthropist, Sandra Ankobiah has volunteered her resources and effort into becoming one of Ghana’s active campaigners against the disproportionate representation of women at the highest levels of socio-economic and socio-political decision-making establishments.

 

All across Ghana, her work has been dedicated to making a positive difference for disadvantaged communities and marginalised people by advancing women and children’s rights. As a vocal member of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA-Ghana), she volunteers her time every week towards enhancing the status of women across the country, she volunteers her services. Also an annual fundraiser for the SOS Village in Tema, Sandra has shown expertise in partnering with human right groups, government institutions, private corporations, and the public to maximise the impact of her initiatives, be it by raising donations or creating awareness of the issue at hand.

 

Guided by a highly principled work ethic, Sandra’s combination of ambition and philanthropy has seen her coordinate for The Legal Advocacy Foundation, an organisation that aims at educating the ordinary Ghanaian about their legal rights and obligations. Her extensive interpersonal skills have also allowed her to relate to people from all walks of life; an invaluable skill she has used to create partnerships with her clients to solve their challenges while supporting their need to make their businesses sustainable.

 

As an innovative business person, Sandra has translated her own practices, goals and visions into a prosperous business by co-founding SN Media Learning Tree, a top-notch provider of practical media training in Accra.

 

In 2016, she was appointed by the Ministry of Youth and Sports as an ambassador for women’s football in Ghana. Sandra is excited about this role and is committed to raising funds increasing awareness and patronage of the women’s game and also their support base.

 

A firm believer that education is the irreplaceable backbone of any society, Sandra studied International and Commercial Law, with a specialization in World Trade, from the University Of Buckingham (LLB, LLM) between 2005 and 2009 and then progressed to finish off at the Ghana School of Law from 2010 till 2012, qualifying with a law certificate and officially becoming a Barrister at Law in February of 2013.
