Matilda “Hipsy”- BlueCrest education has made me more patient
Sometime in 2012, Matilda Naa Quaye shot to fame after she acted in a music video. More than her performance, what came to the limelight was the size of her hips that got her the epithet ‘Hipsy’.
However, Matilda refuses to be defined by just her physical appearance. She is studying for her degree in mass communication at the BlueCrest School of Business and Communication.
“Degree in mass communication is an important step for me because I am trying to go back into the industry well-prepared and achieve the real purpose I wanted,” Matilda says.
She says education at the BlueCrest college has taught her to be more patient, communicative and helped her gain a fresh perspective towards life.
“Education at BlueCrest is an advantage to me because they have good teachers who would always motivate you to be anything you want.”
On how education has influenced her, she says “My favourite thing about the college is how the staff listen to our problems, try to understand them and help us. I admire that approach a lot.”
When asked if it bothered her when people chose to notice her appearance over her personality, she says “It doesn’t bother me at all because I understand why a lot of people are the way they are. I have decided to choose things that should worry me because I know who I am.”
We wish you all the best, Matilda.
