Nana Mensah broke parental barriers and she is now living the life she had always envisioned living. With parents who wanted her to be nothing but a lawyer, Nana made use of the knowledge she amassed from the University of Pennsylvania to fuel her passion as a writer, actress, and filmmaker.
Nana Mensah who was born to Ghanaian parents has earned her place in Hollywood and worldwide. She has starred in over 15 movies and shows, sharing bigger stages and platforms with the big names you could ever think of.
From playing Sarah Obeng in Queen of Glory where she tells her story of quitting an Ivy League school to chase her dreams to her nursing role in the medical drama series New Amsterdam, then came Love or Something Like That, a movie which was directed by the delectable filmmaker Shirley Frimpong Manso and her latest, playing alongside Sandra Oh in a comedy-drama dubbed The Chair.
The Chair tells the story of the first woman of color to become the chair of a university. Mensah plays the role of an independent and gifted black intelligent professor.
