LINDA AGYEIWAA ATIASE'S BIOGRAPHY
The Linda Agyeiwaa Atiase Scholarship Fund (Laasfund) was created in honour of Linda Atiase, entrepreneur and a proud mother of eight. Empowering women to discover their purpose and achieve greatness is a cause Linda advocates for in both her professional and private life. As creative genius behind eastern weaves – an exclusive collection of intricately hand woven designs, Linda aims to give women who wear her cloth, the confidence to take center stage. As a former educator, she understands the importance of education in unlocking the keys to ones potential, and the reverberating impact the contribution of one person can have on society.
As a mother, Linda is adamant in encouraging her daugthers to think critically of the world around them and take advantage of opportunities to expand their horizons. As an overall champion of women, Linda’s hope is that laasfund will benefit the lives of women and their families by supporting their dreams to attend school, establish careers and make a lasting impact on their communities.
