Hi Peter,

I hope this email finds you in good health. This is to provide an update to you all of what I’ve been up to since leaving ActUpNorth Leeds last year.

I returned to Ghana in West Africa to join my husband, see my family and also complete the Ghana Bar which is only 9 months (as in already qualified in the UK). Bring qualified in Ghana means I am able to practice as a lawyer in both Ghana and the UK. Thankfully I’ve been able to achieve all reasons why I relocated to Ghana. I will officially be called to the Ghana Bar in October this year and I’m really excited about that!

On the other side of the coin, I had a role in a movie called ‘Love Regardless’, playing the character of Rachael. Please find link on YouTube below.

This movie became very successful and I went on to receive two nominations for my performance in the premier edition of Golden Movie Awards. My nominations were for “Best Supporting Actress” and “Most Promising Actress”. The awards night was held on the 27th of June 2015 and I scooped the Most Promising Actress award. This was broadcasted online and in various newspapers. I have following the award had many TV and radio interviews etc. it’s all very exciting!

Thanks for the experience and training I received in Leeds. I’m very grateful!

Regards,

Yvonne Okyere –Whalley
