In her narration, she said, Initially, they made me a costumer which I thought was an easy job but I was disappointed. I could iron two maxi bags of clothes and do other stressful jobs but this did not prevent me from pursuing my dream of becoming an actress.
“Later I was featured in a movie dubbed “Kae Dabi” I was paid only GH¢40”, she disclosed during this year’s edition of ‘Tek Talk’ at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Mcbrown, however, said the passion she had for acting made her continue despite the paltry amount she was being given by producers amidst the strenuous work at locations.
“Some of my colleagues gave up and quit but I persevered and that has made me what I am today. I am therefore entreating you to be mindful that all is not rosy on the road to achieving your dreams”, she advised.
