Why My Enrollment To GIJ Failed - Adina


Adina Thembi Ndamse, has opened up on other careers that she had wished for besides music while growing up.The Singer and Songwriter said she once nurtured the dream of becoming a broadcaster.

 In an interview with  Albert Ocran, on this year’s edition of ‘Springboard Your Virtual University’, Adina said she took a step toward working on her broadcasting dream by first attempting to enroll at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ), the country’s premier university for media and communication.

“Even though I always thought I was going to be a singer, I really admired broadcasting. My only attempt at that was going for the GIJ auditions. You know before you can go to GIJ you need to go through an examination period and then they interview you. I think what I went for was the exams but that was the time I was doing Stars of the Future and we really didn’t have time’.

She said, however, that the initiative she took did not see the light of day as she was compelled to choose between a talent show she was participating in and a GIJ school interview to gain admission.

‘I estimated that by a certain time everything would be over but the people that showed up were so much and the queues. So I had to leave. I tried to ask permission from those who were ahead – ‘is it possible that I have my interview?’. They were like ‘why should we give you the opportunity? because I’m doing Stars of the Future. They were like ‘it’s either you are coming to school or you’re not.

“So, I was forced to choose between going back to the house for rehearsals and just staying there and forfeiting the show. I had already started and I really love music so I left. So that was my only attempt,” Adina narrated.
