Juliet is an experienced global Sports Journalist who rose to global prominence after her interview with President of the world football governing body, Gianni Infantino, on the sidelines of a FIFA Summit in Mauritania began to make the rounds on international platforms.

Bawuah graduated from the Ghana Institute of Journalism with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Public Relations.
