Sam Yamoah

After secondary school, Sam relocated from Ghana to a small town in Iowa for the prospect of a better education and more opportunities. Upon looking at business schools, he was immediately intrigued by the interactions he had with students at a Booth Live event and was pleased to see that positive attitude carried through to the classroom during his first year. He hopes to return to Africa someday where he can make an impact in the nonprofit space using what he learned at Chicago Booth.
