She was the eldest of three children – the late Komla Afeke Dumor of the BBC and Dr. Korshie Dumor, an internal medicine specialist based in the United States.

Mawuena graduated from the University of Jos in Plateau State, Nigeria, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology and Mining in September 1996.
