Monalisa Chinda on Being a Single and Working Mother

Posted in: , , ,

Monalisa Chinda is one actress that I knew first from all the publicity surrounding her personal life, even before I saw any of her movies. Since then, I have seen and liked her in Kiss and Tell, among a few other movies. And recently, she's in the news for all the right things, she lends her celebrity status to charities close to her heart, and she is a producer behind a well received TV series.

More and more, I get the sense that she a grounded and ambitioous young woman with her heart in the right place. In this interview with 9jamom.com , she shares more about herself and being a mother and acting professional. When asked if she had words of advice to single working mothers, she said,

Everything comes in stages, have a lot of patience, be flexible and don’t be a martyr. As a single working mother, I know it gets hard sometimes to raise a child on your own. Through your busy schedule, it can be easy to forget that you are not alone when you have so much to deal with. Building your own support system gives you a shoulder to lean on when it comes to all the things that come with raising a child. It’s great to surround yourself with like-minded people — or people you trust to be involved in your everyday life.  In my case, I’m incredibly lucky to have family and close friends who are always ready to help as needed.

  1. Monalisa has been an actress I have been very curious about. Little did i know she had such a big heart & big ambitions. May God bless her & her family richly & enable her to do what she desires. Her cause is amazing : raising awareness about autism across Africa. It is a very noble cause.
    Thank you for sharing!

  3. Monalisa is a beautiful lady and gifted too! I loved her the more in her role in 'Heaven's Gate'. I was almost forgetting that it was only a character play.
