Currently promoting her “SilverRain” movie which premieres this Friday at Silverbird Cinemas she reminisced;
“I didn’t come from a “privileged” background. I grew up in Liberia. Growing up, I was disabled for some time and I overcame that. I came to Ghana and had a difficult time transitioning into the Ghanaian education system. My parents were caught in the Liberian war and lost everything. I was raised by people who were not my parents but they did their best dealing with a stubborn child who had her own creative mind.
“When I started my business, there weren’t mentors to guide me through what I was going to do. I also didn’t have capital. There was a point I was at University of Cape Coast and running my business and I was attending lectures in UCC from Accra.
“This was my first production and so I will come to Accra make sure everything thing was running smoothly, I will go to sleep, wake up at 4am, go to the STC station to ride the bus to Cape Coast for my first lecture. I close at 12pm for my first lecture, get on the bus and head back to Accra. It was a cycle for my final year at UCC.
“I started my business with just a mobile phone and it took me five years to get my first sponsor. And my first programme was Life and Style.” She concluded.
