''I received my early education in Nigeria. My mother had a daycare job. My dad was in the picture, but around 2015, he passed. I had to step down for my younger siblings," Endurance Grand said in her interview with Delay.

When Endurance Grand clocked 15 years old, she relocated from Nigeria to Ghana to live independently in Ho in the Volta Region, "perching" with people to be safe.

''I attended Sunrise Christian High School in Ho when I came to Ghana.''

Endurance Grand recounted working as a pump attendant in Ho for two years after her high school education.

"I was around 20 years," she said, adding she "had not found dancing at that time but was still doing it for fun."
