Almost every media personality has had their names dragged in the mud. The star of this article Nathalie Fort has faced her trials.
In 2019, Natalie Fort took a year’s Leave from TV3 to further her education. She disclosed the need for this Leave as a personal desire to further her education abroad. By morning, every celebrity blog had carried and shared the notion that the News Anchor was pregnant. That would explain the reason for a full year’s Leave.
Natalie Fort didn’t take these allegations lightly.
She intended to pursue the defamatory accusations legally. She stated that her upbringing wouldn’t allow such promiscuity instigated on these blogs. And so, let’s take a look at Natalie Fort’s upbringing, facts about her, and her family details.
Natalie Fort was born Nathalie Ofosua Twum on the 24th of July 1995. She is the second of five children. She started her basic school education at the Ghana International school. For her high school education, Ofosua attended the Merton International school. She started modeling at age 13 and then trained at the Exopa Modelling Agency.
It seems that her mother Joyce Twum who is a seasoned career coach played not just a mother role in Nathalie’s life, but guided her on the right career path. Natalie who may have shown a passion for the Media then attended the Royal Academy of Music and Accra Film school. The decision to attend this school was the groundbreaking moment in Nathalie’s life.
Getting fashion gigs as a model, Miss Twum soon gathered the due confidence to contest for the Miss Princess World Competition in the Czech Republic in 2011. She learned lessons that showed her the path of the broadcasting industry which she chased at TV3 with no level of experience.
The young lady of Akan heritage became a household name. She attained the position of a news anchor on the network’s five-minute on-the-hour news bulletin. She soon got selected again to take up the 15-minute Business News segment on TV3’s breakfast show which she did quite passionately.
The smartly dressed Natalie Ofosua Twum never lost her love for modelling. She intended to create such an opportunity she had for others with a love for the work. She aimed to redefine the art of modelling. So she founded the Fort Model Management that received societal acceptance.
The news anchor is quite a private personality. Nobody knows the reason but she added a foundation to the Fort Model Management. The foundation added substantial value to the society and soon was awarded by the United Nations with the Gold Star Order of the Companion Honour and also accorded the Excellent Personality Merit Award in 2017. She isn’t just beautiful. She has some mighty brains.
Aside from the Fort Model Management and Foundation that entailed a modelling school, luxury lifestyle, entertainment, humanitarian and philanthropic organization, Miss Fort also owns Fort Jewellery – a company that produces the intricate, simple yet elegant pieces of jewellery that she adorns.
Having achieved all these feats in such a short time and at a young age, Nathalie saw it as the right time to further her education abroad. Her career coach and mother wouldn’t let her children rest until they achieved the dreams they set out to achieve.
And Natalie Fort was a great beneficiary of her benevolence.
So, she was heartbroken when Ghanaians assumed she got pregnant out of promiscuity. She worked her way up and everyone saw it. Her upbringing as so far exposed in this article involved chasing and working tirelessly at her dreams
Presently, there is little to no information about the celebrated News Anchor’s father. However, there are widespread rumours about her younger sibling who is into arts and her old sister, who is studying law.
Wondering where she got the “Fort” name? It was from her mother who couldn’t be prouder of Natalie. As a constant reminder of her mother’s belief in her, she made ‘Fort’ her media name.
Miss Nathalie Ofosua Twum is today because of investing time into reading self-help books that positively affected her. She is also a great lover of God who would devote time to read some of Mensah Otabil’s books that taught nearness to the creator.
Contrary to what may be believed about media personalities, Nathalie Fort is selective when it comes to friends. She only loves to hang out and eat with a friend whom she trusts and invites.
To calm her nerves, she listens to Beyonce but basically, she loves jazz and classical music. Perhaps, she could be your ideal media personality or maybe not.
The bottom line is that she’s one of the finest brains and characters the Ghanaian media space has seen in a long while.
