Although she acquired some skills in marketing and sales even in customer service and won awards in her job, but the actress said she still felt unfulfilled.
And a t appoint, she made that bold step to pursue her career in acting, a decision she claims to be very happy about.
In her words: ” Well, I joined the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Enugu chapter at the age of 18 whilst in the university. I had also been really good with the arts, literature and English and participated in plays like ‘The Incorruptible Judge ‘,’She stoops to conquer ‘etc. in secondary school.
I saw acting as beautiful and fascinating and I wanted to join up, I remember I had to borrow money to register as I couldn’t tell my parents about it then and the guild wouldn’t let me audition without being a member. I was mighty excited about it, I couldn’t believe I was sharing the screen with my idols and role models, people I looked up to even if it was little roles I got then, we used to call it executive wakapass.
I felt unfulfilled and unhappy especially at the end days at my white collar job but it wasn’t all in vain, I would say, I acquired some great skills in marketing and sales, also in customer service, both at the call center and the office floor. I was actually really good at the job and emerged best customer service agent of the month for my team severally, I have the certificates to prove it. So I would say I have something to fall back on.”
