Popular Ghanaian actress and model shared a story on how she started her acting career and became what she is today.
According to the actress, she shared this inspiring story to encourage those who have given up on their pursuit for a better life to keep moving.
She took to her Instagram page to share her story, she wrote;
"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 the 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 whole country was asking, 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, (its a school thing) I had to endure this for 4years whiles 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! Im proud i graduated! Im proud i didn’t give up on acting! Not to bore you, if you are going through tough times( it can be anything), if you are under any kind of pressure, just know you’re gonna look back and thank those days because most blessings come from (uncertainties,dark days, disappointments, closed doors, heartbreaks etc) TRUST THE PROCESS"

|Health / World Most Fertile Woman With 44 Children Stopped From Having More by Maraokere: 1:53pm On Oct 16, 2019|
The 40-year-old woman, from Uganda, Mariam Nabatanzi was stopped from giving birth by doctors.
Mariam Nabatanzi suffers from a rare genetic condition and had given birth to 44 children by the age of 36.
According to Msn.africa Mariam has three sets of quadruplets, four sets of triplets and six sets of twins and incredibly manages to care for and feed them all on her own after her husband left her with the children four years ago.
It was reported that Mariam's father had 45 children with several different women.
Mariam married quite early, at the age of 12 while her husband was 4o years old as at then. A doctor warned the mother that birth control, like the Pill, could cause her problems because she had unusually large ovaries after her first set of twins, but the babies just kept coming.
Reports from Msn.africa have it that Ugandan families are often large with women having 5.6 children on average. This is one of the highest birth rates in Africa but even by these standards, Mariam's family is enormous.
Mariam lives with her children in four tiny houses made from cement bricks and a corrugated iron roof.
The 40-year-old mother had 25b children at the age of 23 and begged the doctors for help, but the doctor adviced she should continue giving birth because she has a very high ovary count.
According to the report gathered, Mariam's constant delivery ended after she gave birth to the last set of six twins, and lost one during labour.
According to her, the husband left her for good after she lost the baby and the husband's name is now cursed in her family.
I have grown up in tears, my man has passed me through a lot of suffering.
All my time has been spent looking after my children and working to earn some money."
But it was also after this birth that the mum finally got the medical help she needed to stop her having more babies.
Dr. Charles Kiggundu, a gynecologist at Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda, said:
"Her case is genetic predisposition to hyper-ovulate, which is releasing multiple eggs in one cycle, which significantly increases the chance of having multiples; it is always genetic."
Mariam confirmed that doctors had taken action to remove the risk of her becoming pregnant again. She said the doctor told her he had "cut my uterus from inside".
Mariam has so many jobs that sustain her and her children, she's a hairdresser, an event decorator, she brews her own local gin and also collects and sells scrap metals.
Despite mariam's effort, one of her children, Ivan Kibuka, had to drop from school to support the mother.
The 23-year-old boy said:
"Mum is overwhelmed, the work is crushing her, we help where we can, like in cooking and washing, but she still carries the whole burden for the family. I feel for her."
According to Msn.africa, tye youngsters make do with what their mother provides them with, every one of them engages in house chores, include cleaning, cooking, while the remaining ones take care of the younger ones.
The report shows that Mariam feeds her children with 25kg of maize flour to ensure they have enough to eat.

According to her, 'fortunately, it wasn't really a complete assault but just handling'
"Thankfully, to have a mother who could tell as soon as light broke that this happened and for her to expel him [meant a lot]. That she heard me, believed me, and did something about it, I think was so empowering for me as a young teen, as a young woman."
