DIPLOMAT TO DELIVER ADDRESS

Martha Ama Akyaa Pobee

Martha Ama Akyaa Pobee, who serves as assistant secretary-general of the United National for Africa in its departments of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs and Peace Operations (DPPA-DPO), will deliver the commencement address at Dominican College’s 68th commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 15, at noon at Clover Stadium in Pomona.  Pobee’s interest in international relations and diplomacy was first sparked as a high school student in Cape Coast, Ghana, where she joined a school club called Ghana United Nations Students Association. It was then she began to closely follow the anti-apartheid struggle, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and human rights and economic development issues. A graduate of the University of Ghana, she considers her appointment as Ghana’s first woman permanent representative to the United Nations (2015-2020) to be the highlight of her career. Her latest appointment at the UN follows impressive diplomatic posts in Moscow, Geneva, Tel Aviv, South Africa, New York and Washington, D.C.
