The University of Maryland of College Park, MD

2018

Andrew Tawiah is a 2018 graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park.


Tawiah is a first-generation African-American from Baltimore, Maryland with ancestral roots in Ghana. He credits much of his drive and ambition to his upbringing and athletic background.

Prior to attending the University of Maryland, Tawiah was faced with a difficult decision before graduating from Owings Mills High School in 2015: (1) play college basketball or (2) focus on his studies in preparation for law school. After weighing his options, he opted against playing college basketball after visiting schools and decided to attend the University of Maryland in preparation for law school.


During his time at Maryland, he served as the President of Men’s Club Basketball, and a scout player for Maryland Women’s Basketball. While at Maryland, he founded an events business to improve the social experience for minority students. He established an annual charity basketball game to raise funds for Catherine’s Family and Youth Services in his hometown in Baltimore and gave away a book scholarship to a Maryland student through the efforts. After graduation, he moved to Greensboro, North Carolina, to attend Elon University School of Law in pursuit of a Juris Doctorate.


While at Elon, Tawiah combined his passion for Sports and Entertainment with his interests in the law. During law school, he had the opportunity to serve as a legal intern with BET Networks and IMG Academy. Tawiah graduated from Elon University School of Law in 2021 where he received his Juris Doctorate. He recently accepted an offer to join The Beanstalk Group as Assistant General Counsel in New York.
