She was, however, quick to note that her training at Mfantsiman Girls helped shaped her entire life and said:
"I went to the Nursing and Midwifery Training College at Korle Bu where I graduated with a Diploma in Nursing in 2008 and started working as a nurse in 2010 after national service".
From there, Owusua notes she continued to Central University College to top up for a Bsc Degree in Nursing alongside work and graduated in 2013.
In 2014, Owusua applied to Gimpa Law Faculty for an LLB and got admitted which she did along with working night shifts at the hospital and gained admission to the Law school in 2017 after graduating from Gimpa and finally was called to the Ghana Bar in October 2019.
