For high school she attended The Beacon School, an elite college preparatory secondary school in New York City. There she was a dancer for the Beacon Dance Company, Captain of the Student Leadership Team, President of Senior Committee, and the Founder of United Colors of Beacon. Throughout her entire life Owusu never swayed away from the chance to get involved! During her summers, Owusu has been a Learning Coach for Harlem RBI Real Kids, and has interned at corporate law firms throughout New York. After graduating from The Beacon School, Owusu was admitted to Temple University, where she currently attends as a Political Science major, and serves as a Resident Assistant, Secretary for the Organization of African Students, and Treasurer for the Beta Delta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
