“When I chose to pursue my dream as a movie star, not many producers believe I had a chance on the big screens.
the journey to the ultimate goal didn’t come easy, there have been numerous days I turned up, did everything right but was turned down nevertheless but that didn’t stop me.
The next day I still heat the audition ground like there was no discouragement. Today I live my dream as my everyday reality,” she wrote in parts.
Rachael started her career as a backup dancer for gospel singers like Gozie Okeke, Njideka Okeke and Paul Nwokocha before venturing into acting.
