LOOK LIKE A CELEBRITY

Famously Fit - Menaye

Since representing my home country of Ghana at the Miss Universe pageant back in 2005, my whole career has been spent in front of a camera. And now, I am taking up acting lessons so have to get used to being filmed as well as photographed!

Acting is a huge challenge! I spent six weeks in New York, taking a class three times a week. It is really hard work, although it has some similarities to modeling – you have to adapt to different surroundings and take on a new persona. Of course with modeling, we are “mute” but in acting we are vocal. My favourite classes were improvisation, and my director said I was good at this – I can change accents without hesitation.

Menaye Donkor

Hello, Menaye. I am really looking forward to this interview – you have such an interesting background and a lot we could cover. But let´s start with where you were born and what it was like to be brought up there.

I was actually born in Toronto, Canada but spent most of my time growing up in Ghana. Ghana is a beautiful country with a growing economy and is filled with warm friendly people. It has a large expatriate community with individuals from all over the world. President Obama and his wife Michelle visited Ghana last year and apparently they love my country too!
