Actress Martha Ankomah says she is grateful to God that she did not end up a bad girl or wayward because growing up she faced financial crisis.
She said this in an interview with mygong.net.
Interview below; -
Can you take me through schools you have attended?
MARTHA: I completed Adabraka Presbyterian Junior High School. Then I attended Labone Senior High School and finally Jayee University College where I did Marketing.
How did Acting start for you?
MARTHA: I was introduced into acting by a cousin at a very tender age. This cousin by name Harry Amonoo took me to the National Theatre in 1994 where I joined the Harrisco Drama Group where i started stage drama in Funworld and Kiddafest . When I was admitted to Senior High School I joined the Theatre Programme for Schools (TPS), where we were doing stage drama for Senior High Schools. After the stage drama, I started doing series like St. James Hotel, Where is your Mobile? All that glitters, Suncity and others. Acting became something that I was developing a passion for so whenever I heard of any auditions anywhere I go and try my luck.
How was life for you and your siblings when your mother became a single parent?
MARTHA: It wasn’t easy. You just had to help. You just needed to be a good girl to help your mom - you have to be self-discipline - so when she asks you to carry something on your head to go and sell, you don’t have to shout or say you’re shy - you just have to do it because you know you’re helping your family.
And me being the first born I had no choice than to help. I thank God so much I did not go wayward - I did not end up as a bad girl during those trying moments. I just realized that it was an opportunity to learn the hard way and that has really helped me.
It was very difficult at the beginning but God being so good something good came out of it.
