Renowned Ghanaian actress, Nana Ama McBrown, has confessed dropping out of Junior High School while in form 2.
The actress, also revealed she never got the opportunity to sit for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) while a student at Kwadaso L.A. J.S.S.
According to her, the large family size at the time coupled with the economic situation did not favour her to complete school and had to bow of school early in pursuit of other interests especially professional football.
“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 McBrown disclosed to students at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) during this year’s edition of ‘Tek Talk’.
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.
“Me I don’t have the degree or the educational certificates but I will do them some day. 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.
