The vibrant woman revealed that she, along with her brother and mother lived in a single room growing up and they saw the struggles of their mother.
Their hardworking mother also made it very clear to them that she intends to give out all her properties in the event of her death hence they must work hard to acquire properties of their own, Kate revealed.
With this in mind, they were constantly motivated to do their best to make it in life.
YEN.com.gh sought the take of a successful single Ghanaian mother called Selina Buabeng about the decision Kate's mother made and she had this to say;
It is a good thing that Kate's mother wanted to instil hardwork in her children and clearly it worked out but i don't see myself ever deciding to give out all my properties at the expense of my children.
The fact that I suffered to acquire them should not mean my children need to suffer as well.
I toiled to acquire them so that they would not have to do the same.

After completing Archbishop Porter Girls' Secondary, she had a chance to study in Germany and upon completion, she returned to Ghana to start a bridal wear business.
