Deaconess Oheneba Ama Nti Osei of the Pentecost International Worship Centre, Paris (PIWC-Paris) in France has been named one of the “100 Most Influential People Of African Descent Under 40” (Class of 2018), in support of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent, being observed from 2015 to 2024.
The global recognition was given by MIPAD, a US-based, UN-affiliated civil society organisation working in support of the Decade to identify high achievers of African descent in public and private sectors all over the world.
Deaconess Nti Osei, who was one of the honorees in the Media & Culture category, is a Journalist and the Research & Production Editor for The Africa Report, an award-winning pan-African magazine published by Jeune Afrique Media Group in Paris, France.
Arriving in France in her mid-teens with sheer determination and a desire to make a difference, she has rapidly climbed up the ranks of the corporate ladder, and in the process dispelled the popular myth that achieving your goals in a francophone country is an uphill battle for English-speaking Africans.
A member of the African Women Leadership Network, Deaconess Nti Osei currently serves as the National Children’s Ministry Leader for The Church of Pentecost in France and is passionate about encouraging the younger generation to walk in their divine purpose and to rely on God’s infinite grace in their quest to achieve success and attain higher heights.
