(LONG POST ALERT) There was simply no explanation as to why the lady at the South Africa High Commission in Nairobi seemed to take pride in hindering the progress of processing my work permit. “Look, the company needs to tell us why they’re hiring outside of South Africa”, she said curtly, for the umpteenth time,...

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. (Jimmy Dean) ‘Um, so I start…tomorrow?’ I asked Farida Karoney, flustered. She had called me while I was on a break at the Coast after hosting 2 seasons of the travel show Out and About, which...

I was 17 years old when my Business Studies teacher in High school suggested I pursue a career in Media. I remember looking at her blankly because I’d just poured my heart out to her about my desire to ‘fix’ criminals by delving into their mindset in my chosen career of Criminal Psychology. She didn’t...

When someone knows you in and out, whether or not you’re sulking, even the slightest change in your mood and demeanor tells them you’re not yourself. Sometimes that change is brought about by thoughts you...

So my week of possibilites hit a bit of a glitch 😒 Yesterday, 24th January, I had a day that started well but didn’t end too great. While I was able take my son to the Nairobi National Museum for the first time and get in some R&R with a close friend, on my way...

I tried out for many things before landing my current gig as News Anchor/Media Personality. I auditioned to be a Radio Presenter (that eventually worked out)! I took a course in counselling psychology because I’ve always been fascinated by human emotions. But then one day, I’m not sure if this was because someone loosely suggested...

I’ll never forget standing in front of a dozen or so schools, giving a summary of my final argument during the inter-school debate competition in Mombasa. The year was 1998.
