Born Felicity Ama Agyemang, Nana Ama Mcbrown is one of the most popular Ghanaian actresses on the continent. She is equally one of the most loved celebrities in Ghana.
But as fluent and highly educated Nana Ama Mcbrown appears, do you know she didn’t even complete Junior High School? Well, that is the shocking revelation she has made.
According to the Kumawood star, she dropped out of School in Junior Secondary School (JSS) Form 2. She explained that she didn’t get the chance to sit for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) while a pupil at Kwadaso L.A. because of financial challenges.
The talented and versatile actress made this revelation during this year’s edition of “Tek Talk” at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to motivate the gathered students not to allow challenges block their shine.
“I dropped out of JSS because my parents were unable to finance my education. I don’t have a certificate even though I wish I had.”
Nana Ama MacBrown said she had to bow out in pursuit of other interests, especially professional football which she was good at.
Though she observed that it has remained one of the major challenges in her life, it does not suggest the end of life as she appears to be doing well in other areas. She however hinted of plans to further her education in the near future.
“I don’t have a degree or the educational certificates but I will do them someday. I want to use this opportunity to urge you not to allow challenges like this to weigh you down.
“Be yourself and do not strive to be like Nana Ama McBrown because you will remain in my shadow if you want to be like me,” she advised.
Nana Ama Mcborwn is not only a talented actress, she is also a music writer and a TV show host.
