I regret not being serious with my education – Yvonne Nelson

Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson has revealed how the entertainment industry made her lose focus with her education during her time in school.

In an interview with Joy FM, Yvonne Nelson revealed the challenges she faced when she had to retake some papers after she failed her Senior High School examination.

“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,” she said. 

Yvonne Nelson also expressed gladness that she didn’t dump her educational pursuit for anything.

“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,” she added.
