My journey as an actress started in my church drama group, at the age of 13. I appeared on TV for the first time, on children’s  show on GTV then called ‘Children’s Own’. Even though I wasn’t acting professionaly at that time, I traveled and performed with the church drama group.

In 2006 I went for audition and I realized I had to take my acting career seriously, and that was when I landed my first role in the drama series ‘Yes Matron’. I hustled through till I took part in the ‘Ghana Movie Star’ TV reality show in 2008.  Through that I landed in first role in the feature length movie ‘The Bible Torn Apart in 2008. 

What motivated and inspired you to start acting ?

Well, my motivation to start acting was driven by the things l saw around me. Growing up as a child I dreamed I could be a superwoman and fix everyone’s problem. This gave me the drive to harness my creative abilities, till  this day.  Not to mention my love for movies, which spawns me to be like the great Oscar-winning performers Whoopi Goldberg and Denzel Washington.

Are you currently movie/series that you would like our readers to know about?

I recently finished shooting a comedy skit with Ghanaian London-based comedian J Bill but the most recent TV series l feature in is Master and 3 Maids. It’s a hilarious comedy series.

Over the years, I have featured in several movies like;

Freetown(Indie Movie), Children Of The Mountains, Tabibi, Wrong Target & Any More Women etc.
As well as some award winning Tv Series like
Office PALAVA,Tentacles, Super Broadway, Xcapade & The Rugged Cross.

Where are you based?

I reside in Tema – Ghana (West Africa)

What were the first few steps you took to get your acting career going ?

Before I started my journey as a professional actress, I studied the craft of acting. I did this by  reading  resource materials on the art of acting and then I got myself enrolled in an acting school.

What has been the most effective way of raising awareness & getting roles in movies?

That’s simple! Attending auditions, social media and networking with other actors and actresses.

What have been your biggest challenges so far?

My challenge as an actress has been dealing with producers who underestimate the talent of a young female actress and think having their way with them sexually, is the only way to feature them in their movies.

How did you overcome these challenges?

By being steadfast and courteous to the core principles of being a woman with integrity.

How do you keep motivated through difficult times?

I praise and pray. I also focus on my goals and passion as an actress to make my dream a reality. The fact that young girls look up to me, keeps me motivated to always stay focused.

How do you distinguish yourself from your competitors?

Personally I don’t think of myself as being different from anyone and no one is my competitor. My competition is with myself! The consciousness of being a better version of myself than I was yesterday.  Respecting who l am, makes me unique in my own right as an actress with integrity.

What is the best advice you have received recently?

To always be myself and impact lives positively as I always do.

What advice would you give to other aspiring actors?

You should command respect to your craft and to your person, because we all influence the lives of others  through our talents as performers.  In the end we need each other not because we are incomplete, but because we are one.

What is a good article or book you have read recently?

Beyond the grave book written by Issac Kofi Arthur, Fire in His Bones book written by Ruthanne Garlock about Benson Idahosa of blessed Memory And the book of Isaiah, Psalms and Proverbs in the bible. These books in the Bible has shaped and given my life a meaning.

What are you currently learning about or looking for help with?
