Ama gained her first cap for the England Roses netball team in 2001 and went on to captain Team England to its historic gold medal at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia. She received an MBE for her services to netball in 2019.

An in-depth knowledge of international sport, combined with her legal qualification, provided the basis, in recent years, for her taking roles as ambassador, trustee and/or board member to various charitable organisations and Commonwealth Games England. She has used her experience and platform to be a thought leader in racial equality, youth, and female empowerment. 

Ama also provides coaching centred around body positivity and participation.
