Actress and TV personality Naa Ashorkor has advised female University of Ghana students to take up every opportunity that comes their way, even when not ready.
She explained further, females should do away with the ‘women are timid’ stereotype and be assertive and embrace all types of opportunities that could hone their skills.
The multiple award winning actress shared this piece of advice earlier this week at the University in her address.
She emphasized females should always say ‘yes’ to opportunities and develop positive attitudes towards them.
“Don’t say ‘no’ but ‘yes’ even if you can’t and then go and learn about what you’ve been asked to do and come back and do it,” said she.
Naa Ashorkor added that even when not ready, females should say ‘yes’ to opportunities and learn about them. “Say yes to every opportunity even the ones you are not prepared for.”
She said she has progressed to this point in her career because she never said no to opportunities that came her way; especially the ones she knew would lead to the future she envisioned for herself.
