Nellisa Attiogbe, a 10-year-old beautician, and a former contestant of TV3 Talented Kidz, has been trending following her photos going viral.
At just age 10, Nelissa is already a hairstylist, a nail technician, a makeup artist and anything beauty.
Nellisa has disclosed to YEN.com.gh in an exclusive interview that she started her craft at age 4.
It seems that though Nellisa is talented in that field, she also has her mother’s traits deposited in her as her mother is a hairdresser.
She recounted how she watched her mother work effortlessly to bring satisfaction to her clients who visited her shop.
I watched my mother do the hair. Sometimes, I also take my doll to braid the hair. I realised I could do it easily,” Nelissa told Philip Abutiate during an interview.
Given what she could do at that early age, Nellisa said those who visited her mother’s shop often expressed surprise at seeing her and what she does.
Some of them, she said, told her mother that her daughter would grow to take after her profession.
But my mother would say no, I want my daughter to become a doctor, not a beautician,” Nelissa revealed.
She is currently in primary 6, and asked what she wanted to be in future, the talented girl says she wants to become a big and popular beautician known all over Ghana.
Nelissa is also happy that her mother has finally allowed her to pursue her dreams and talent following an earlier opposition.
YEN.com.gh earlier published 10 photos and videos of Nelissa working on both male and female clients.
Nelisa took part in the 2018 edition of the Talented Kids show organised by TV3. The show seeks to highlight the talents of children between the ages of 6-15 years.
