A celebrated Ghanaian Actress, Rabby Bray has graduated with an Executive Master's Degree in Marketing Management from the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS).
The occasion which took place on Saturday, January 15, 2021 saw her join other graduates of the Class of 2021 to celebrate their academic victory on the premises of the UGBS, Legon.
Rabby stated that it wasn't an easy journey combining studies with other compelling activities, but in the end, the knowledge and training she gained has made her a better person.
Asked about the relevance of higher education and its relation to job prospects, the affable actress described it as rather a question of purpose. "Acquiring knowledge is a never ending process. Again, I believe one acquires knowledge to improve self; not necessarily to get a good job. If one's sole purpose of education is to get a job, then they may end up disappointed. I pursued my masters programme to broaden my horizon so I can be a better version of myself", she noted.
She touched on the need for further studies to serve as a great lubricant for excellence and confidence. “Education is extremely important to me. Learning something new every day makes us human and gives us proficiency in an area of speciality. It also teaches one to think outside the box, and if you know me well, you know that is exactly my forte," she added.
The award-winning Actress, businesswoman and philanthropist, hinted that though the benefits of higher education are rewarding, its pursuit wasn't so easy for her. "It hasn't been an easy one. Combining my job as Sales Manager at Devtraco Plus, an active acting career, my reality Tv Show (Rabby's Starlets), Ambassadorial work and family duties. Covid- 19 didn't go easy on us, as we had to take a different approach to learning; at times, I had to stay at the office after 10pm in order to attend a couple of lectures via zoom. Other times, be on set and participate during online lectures the same time. But, I did it and I am happy I did not give up", she mentioned.
