In an interview with Sunday Scoop, she said, “Honestly speaking, it is the Lord Jesus (Christ) (that led me to acting) because I never planned to become an actress. I have said this several times. I did not even know I was going to become an actor. But we thank God, I am here and ‘killing’ it.”

Outside acting, Ooja explained that she could have been a model, while stating that she can act and sing beautifully.

“I could be a model. I can also host shows; I think every actor can be presenters. I can dance and sing as well.”
