Actress Yvonne Nelson has narrated how her relationship with her best friend ended after they completed Senior High School (SHS).
“My best friend, with whom I did everything at Aggrey Memorial SHS cut ties with me when she went to the university, and I didn’t,” she recounted on Adom TV’s M’ashyase3 with Afia Amankwa Tamakloe.
These were the words of Ghanaian actress and producer Yvonne Nelson as she opens up on how she was belittled after she completed SHS.
This, according to her, was a result of her failure to write two subjects in the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination since she was not much enthused about education and learning at the time.
“I studied Business in SHS but failed to write two of my electives, Accounting and Costing, in the final exams. My concentration was on entertainment and performance,” she said.
According to her, that was a decision she regretted as she had to stay home while her mates gained admission into various universities.
However, the attitude of her mates, particularly her best friend, motivated her to resit the papers and further her education.
“I believe she [My friend] started looking down on me. She might have thought that I wasn’t a serious girl; she couldn’t make it.
“I was pained, and I just said to myself that I have to re-write and make sure I get to school, and after the remedial, I gained admission to Central University,” she said.
