I regret not being serious in my education' - Yvonne Nelson Yvonne Nelson has some regret about her years as a student in the High school. She says she regrets not being serious with her studies. The Ghanaian actress and Mother of one in an interview with Joy FM, narrated how she had little time for her books after getting a spot in the entertainment industry. She further explained the challenges she faced in making out time to re-sit for some papers, after she failed her Senior High School (SHS) examination. 

The Ghanaian actress has advised that opting for remedial classes to sit for failed papers after Senior High School (SHS) isn’t a good practice and should not be encouraged. She explained that, failing and making time to re-sit for some papers after school was a herculean task and she wouldn’t wish that for any student. In her words, “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" In another citing, she says “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 (born November 12, 1985) is a famous Ghanaian actress, model, film producer and entrepreneur. She has starred in several movies, including House of Gold (2013), Any Other Monday, In April, and Swings amongst others which has won her lots of awards locally and internationally.

Yvonne Nelson is one of the richest and most influential actress in Ghana with an estimated net worth of $1 million. The point the beautiful and talented actress is making is that youths especially should focus on their education first and be done with it until the highest point of it before delving into career accomplishment. Of course you agree with me that not all opportunities neglected at first presents itself again later in future. Whatever qualification one bags in his or her education, is a whole lot of knowledge and achievement. It gives such individual, the exposure he or she needs to face life challenges. As one goes higher in life, the ladder to his success is doubled and trippled and it becomes difficult to recover from setbacks and take up abandoned past projects, it becomes such a Herculean task to accomplish.

Education is the bedrock, the bedrock and solid foundation for a more purposeful and better life. Not all celebrities are satisfied completely without a complete education (as in to tertiary level) and not all can have the courage to voice it out but thanks to Yvonne Nelson, now, Nigerian youths can understand the importance of education and am sure will lead to the celebrity's admonishment.
