Monalisa Chinda and daughterMonalisa Chinda is one actress that I knew first from all the publicity surrounding her personal life, even before I saw any of her movies. Since then, I have seen and liked her in Kiss and Tell, among a few other movies. And recently, she’s in the news for all the right things, she lends her celebrity status to charities close to her heart, she is a producer behind a well received TV series, and more and more, I get the sense that she a grounded and ambitioous young woman with her heart in the right place. In this interview, she shares more about herself and being a mother and acting professional…

It’s a real pleasure to interview you. How would you describe yourself?

I’m a very joyful, determined, hardworking and highly motivated person. I’m straight forward and take things in stride in a very positive manner. Adventurous by nature and love new challenges as it gives me the zeal and impetus to work towards excellence.

Acting is a major part of my life but I am also very passionate about charitable work which includes promoting autism awareness across Africa. One thing I firmly believe in is that one should always strive towards individual betterment, in whichever form it may be. As such, I’m never tired of beginning where others end. I have a huge faith in God and He has been always faithful in many big ways.

In addition to your role as a celebrity actress, you are also a “mommy”. What does motherhood mean to you?

Motherhood is the most honorable blessing I’ve ever received. It has changed the way I live, think, feel and behave. Who knew you could feel so much love for someone? The only word I can think of to describe it is “Bliss”.

Who is your greatest motherhood role model?

My Mother, hands down! She is the strongest person I know – very supportive, caring, and spiritual. I am grateful for all her sacrifices for us and love her very much. She is a super woman and a super mom!!!

Your daughter has a unique name. What does it mean, and why did you choose it?

Tamar means – the Tree planted on the dessert… It is a symbolic name due to the beauty and fruitfulness of the tree. The wind blows, the storm comes but the tree stays still. It also means the graceful and fertile woman.
