Hardly do we see people come out to share their secrets on how they became successful in their various fields but Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, has in her latest post inspired her social media followers on how she became the “Yvonne Nelson” we all know today.

The actress who has been given the title of “Yaa Asantewaa” unofficially recounted her journey to becoming a prominent actress in the movie industry.

Yvonne Nelson shared her long story to inspire people when she posted:

”The arrogant princess Tyra was in Central University level 100 when Salam called me during lectures for a meeting, I got there and realized they were shooting this movie…he told me he wanted to see how I looked in the costume, to cut this long narration short, I changed, they gave me a script and started shooting immediately, geez! I sucked! Couldn’t focus! Had no experience, they laughed and teased me.” 

‘There was a point Kofi Adjorlolo got so angry he asked Salam and the director to replace me, after my last scene i whispered to one of the extras i wasn’t gonna come back the next day, she obviously went straight to Salam and told him, that day was embarrassing, humiliating but guess what, it was the biggest BLESSING in my career and my acting journey, it opened many doors, the country asked who this new girl was! In class I couldn’t even concentrate, group presentations sucked cuz everyone was waiting for me to mess up so they could laugh , (it’s a school thing).”

Yvonne Nelson noted that she ”had to endure this for 4years while acting full time.

”Lectures started at 7am and shoot around 9am, i was always under pressure to leave school and go on set! Imagine closing from set at midnight, going for lectures at 7am and repeating this for 4years. Haven’t even mentioned trips to Nigeria etc for work! I’m proud i graduated! I’m proud I didn’t give up on acting.”
