Jessica Ayeley Quaye, a freshman majoring in Electrical Engineering is passionate about design thinking, particularly its power to trigger and nurse innovation in the field of Engineering. She’s the Public Relations Officer and a founding member of “The After Nine Effect”, a venture which was birthed out of design thinking at Ashesi. She started out FDE I with mixed feelings and a great deal of skepticism about how “creative” she was. Her love for design grew with time as she saw a transformation in the way she viewed things and her ideology about creativity. Now, design thinking has been of great benefit to how she tackles her project on automating Ghana’s public transportation system.
