Actress Yvonne Nelson wishes she had paid more attention to her education in a new interview where she also revealed that she even had to rewrite exams.
She was interviewed on Joy FM where she also disclosed that juggling her burgeoning acting career and education was very difficult.
“I would go on stage every Saturday in SHS. I had to rewrite some papers. I was so into entertainment that I didn’t take my schooling serious. You can easily mess up and not make it to university. I regret not paying attention to my books so when I see kids of today, I tell them to pay attention to their books,”
The actress also said that even though one is doing well, people must continue to strive to climb the ladder of education, regardless of what field they find themselves.
“I was in Central University. And it wasn’t easy mixing sets with classes. I had to make up my mind. It was tough. Nigerian producers were giving me juicy offers and I was torn between accepting the offers or not. But, I had to focus on school and I was so happy to have graduated, I didn’t want to defer,”
Yvonne Nelson is a mother and she talked about how lovely it is to be one, but that it also slowed her down on her path to success and that it was difficult handling both work and a child at the same time.
“It’s a man’s world and a woman has to go on a break, have a baby, start looking after the baby. So yeah, it is really tough that we get to work and take care of the kids as well,”
She also revealed in another interview with DayBreak Hitz that she has political ambitions and could be competing for office in the near future.
