You just celebrated 25th, how true is that figure because ladies don't share their DOB?

Tell us what crazy thing you did on your birthday?
Didn't do anything crazy, just the normal thing I do everyday "was extremely happy".
At what point of your life did you decide on which path to follow?
Well, I have always had love and passion for entertainment right from childhood, I participated in every dance show/competition in all drama groups from primary school, secondary school, university up to NYSC Camp but my mum didn't like the idea so I stopped dancing but couldn't stop acting in church drama, before my NYSC, I worked as an auditor in a finance house but one day after four months of working, I just realize I couldn't keep up, so I resigned, that was in 2012, I went for NYSC and finished in 2014, after my NYSC I was trying to enroll for my masters in 2014 but one day after watching one of Angelina Jolie's movies I started mimicking her and a friend of my said "Amah you're a good actress, am taking you for an audition tomorrow, so we did go for an audition, the judges commended me, gave me a role and that was it, then I realized this is who I am.
What were the thoughts of vocation on your mind?
I never lost an argument and then I love buying and selling, so I was thinking of Law or being a very big business tycoon.
Aside acting what else pays your bill?
Am a fashion stylist, I own a clothing line called Amah's Dress up, I sell female clothes and hair wigs.
How has your educational and family background influenced what you do for a living, tell us everything about school and siblings?
Educational background has helped me in my work because the course I studied, Religion and Human Relations taught me how to relate and cope with different people no matter the situation, attitude, mood or circumstance because in line of my duty, I meet different people everyday, colleagues, crew and fans. As for my family background, its like my root and remote control remembering where I came from, reminds me of my limits, goals and virtue. My secondary school was Owerri Girls Secondary School Owerri, Imo State, from there to Imo State University, Owerri. My schooling, I will describe as a journey of life, some days were bad some were good but in all I am happy, I am here today and about my siblings I have just one brother, no sister.
Every actor especially female has got a first bad experience, what's yours?
Wow...I've got a bad one to share, it was at a location where I've been given a script and was ready to go, then surprisingly, because I didn't have a car, I was swept off the role and it was given to a lady who had a car simply because they need a car for props on set, I will never forget, so painful.
And what's your status like today?
To God be the glory, am upwardly mobile with two state of the art cars in my garage.

I can deliver any romantic script beautifully well but if it's immoral or corrupt NO, I won't do a movie that my family won't proudly sit and watch with their friends, apart from that my future kids too.
