In an interview with GoldenIcons few years ago, Ini Edo was asked how she got into acting and what her first movie was; here's what the beautiful actress had to say:

"I was invited by a course mate who was already a make-up artist for an audition since our school was on strike at the time. The very 1st movie I featured in was “Child of Destiny" -Ini Edo 

Now, we all know the academic situation in Nigeria right now i.e., the four-month -ld school strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). The strike have left many students without hope, while some are using the lengthy ASUU strike to explore opportunities around them.

Though the NMN Team are not certain what led to the school strike Ini Edo experienced over a decade ago while in University, she was able to turn the bad experience into a good one by partaking in an audition that paved the way for her to become the Nollywood star she is today.

So university students affected by the ASUU strike Nigeria, especially those with a dream, passion, or with a natural talent, should not hesitate to explore many of the opportunities in the Nigerian film industry called NOLLYWOOD.
