Speaking to CornerYai the business management student talks experience in broadcasting, making a difference and engaging with the world with media.
What was the motivation to start down this career path?
I don't think my age has any effect on my target audience because I believe if people love and are in support of what I am doing, then I don't see why that should restrict them... The positive things of being a young presenter is that I get to connect and empower both young and old people.
Social media is one of the most important tools in our generation. Its has enabled people to have a voice and this is why it has become essential for presenters, actress, singers etc..to change the way their interact with their fans. However majority of our people use social media to tackle their issues with someone they are beefing with...
You are also an actress and you have rubbed shoulders with some pretty major players in the game. Do you ever get star struck and which celebrity meeting made you the most nervous ?
Yes, I am! I started as an actress but I always wanted to do something different.
Something I feel comfortable doing is presenting- even though I still act, I am more focus on my presenting.
I have met such as Ramsey Noah, Desmond Elliot, Alex Ekubo, Heyden Adama, Bisa Kdei, Nasser Ayoub etc...
You were in Sierra Leone recently, did you make any collaboration /connections whilst you were out there, do you plan on returning soon ?

I think it’s important to know your craft and be yourself! You have to be focused and have a clear vision of what is it you want to do. Of course, there will be many bumps along the way, but don’t get distracted by the zigzags in the road. Vision and passion are very clear; if you believe in something, other people will too. Chase your dream!
