It is no surprise that a lot of people look up to her. She told The Citizen: "I have been blessed with great opportunities an I am grateful to have a job in an industry I love. But I've reached a point in my career where I always ask myself: 'What an I doing to contribute positively to my country? I am considered a celebrity but what am I being celebrated for?' Just being on TV is not enough."

She told the paper that acting is not enough anymore. "I am over the fame idea. What matters now is the impact I am able to have on the lives of others."

That's why the the actress has focused some of her energy on working with organisations that motivate to achieve their dreams as entrepreneurs and entertainers.
