A leading member of the Dance group, DWP Academy, Endurance Dzigbordi Dedzo popularly known as Endurance Grand has shared that she had to quit her education to take care of her other siblings in a  story of perseverance and sacrifice.

In a candid interview on “The Delay Show” with Delores Frimpong Manso on TV3, Endurance Grand revealed that due to a severe financial crisis, her family faced after completing Sunrise Christian  High School, she made the difficult decision to forego her education to ensure her younger siblings had the opportunity to receive an education.

“After I completed secondary school my family experienced financial crisis. We were like 3 kids in addition to myself so 4. My mum used to work in a daycare,” she shared

Endurance Grand explained that tragedy struck in 2015 when her father passed away, leaving the responsibility of caring for the family on the shoulders of her mother, her elder sister, and herself.

“My dad was also in the picture supporting but around 2015 he passed. So it fell on my mum, my elder sister and myself to take care of the family. So I had to step down for my younger siblings to go to school,” she said

 At the age of 20, she found employment as a pump attendant at a Goil filling station in Ho, where she worked for two years.

“I worked at a Goil filling station in Ho as a pump attendant for two years. I was around 20 years,” she said.

According to the dance instructor and viral content creator, during this challenging period, she had not yet discovered his passion for dance, engaging in it solely for personal enjoyment rather than as a means of earning an income.

“I had not found dance at that time but I was doing it for fun. I wasn’t using it to earn money at that time,” she disclosed

The native of the Volta Region, who was born in Ghana, but lived most of her childhood in Nigeria has become a sought-after choreographer having worked with the likes of Usher, Nana Ama Mcbrown, Gyakie and many others under the Dance With A Purpose brand.

She, however, shared that she had temporarily put her academic pursuits on hold and will go back to continue soon despite the incoming fame and financial success.
