Yvonne Nelson has taken to Instagram to speak about the prejudice she faced when she was pregnant with her daughter.
The Ghanian actress-filmmaker spoke about this in reaction to the news that Kenyan Lawmaker, Zuleikha Hassan, was kicked out of the chambers for bringing her sick baby to work.
“I’ll tell you mine, a telecommunication company dropped me because I came clean and told them I was pregnant,” she began, per LIB. “They wanted me to shoot an ad. [I] told them I had 3 months more to go and assured them I could come to work right after!”
She continued, “Guess what, the lady who called didn’t even say congrats she said ‘ sorry Yvonne, the dynamics will change.’ I was hurt! I was broken! All these and more made me stronger!! IM PROUD TO BE A MOTHER!!!! Best decision ever! I will forever WIN!!!!! #proudmum #woman #africa”
