Ghanaian actress, Andrea Owusu, popularly known as Efia Odo has revealed her plans to build a psychiatric facility in Ghana in the near future.
The actress who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Nyack College/University wants to pursue her area of speciality in the near future.

She wrote: “I’m not qualified to be a news reporter. I didn’t study Anything pertaining to journalism. I’ll just stick to what I know. I wanna build a psychiatric homeless facility in the future so….”
