Ghanaian entrepreneur and creative genius, Hannah Akomeah, is a senior high school (SHS) graduate who transforms used car tyres into stunning furniture.
The hardworking young lady turns tyres into beautiful home furniture such as tables and round sofas that are very comfortable.
Furniture making has been a male-dominated field for a long time, but Hannah is one of many young women shaping and changing the narrative.
Hannah is all about taking existing used tyres and modelling and transforming them into something beautiful.
Currently residing at Nkawkaw, Hannah has trained many, including young people, in the craft to make them useful to themselves and society.
In some amazing photos that have emerged of the talented young lady, Hannah is seen going about her usual hustle as she designs wonderful comfy furniture from used tyres. She uses African print material as a cover for the finishing touch.
Her designs are gaining attention on social media.
While Hannah’s craft is not unique to her, many have been inspired by her craft, particularly because she is an SHS graduate who has made something of her life despite the drawbacks.

In another story, students of the Robotics Club at Obuasi Senior High Technical School in the Obuasi Municipal District of the Ashanti Region have converted a plastic bucket into an electronic hand-washing tap to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.
This latest innovation comes amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and its rise across nations around the world.
Countries, including Ghana, have outlined guidelines to stem the spread of the dreaded disease, including advocating regular hand washing with soap under running water to observe personal hygiene.
With the novel innovation, if procured in large quantities, users would not have to worry about touching the tap and any possible infection and spread of the COVID-19.
