Abena Ampofo

Abena is our resident royalty. She is a senior Psychology and Africana Studies double-major with minors in Sociology and Chemistry, with a certificate in African Studies on the pre-medical track. She found her way to the program during her freshman year. Since then, she has studied abroad in Iringa, Tanzania and is in her second year as a Student Ambassador with the African Studies Program. In addition to her duties as a Student Ambassador, Abena works as a Psychiatric Research Assistant at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. She also mentors international students through her dual role as both a Global Ties Mentor and Pitt to You Ambassador. She often jokes that a full plate keeps her sane and out of trouble. Please reach out to Abena with questions about study abroad and scholarships! Hail to Pitt!
