Her hard work, determination and zeal ensured that she transitioned to campus where she pursued her studies at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.

What's unknown to many about her is the fact that at one point in her life, she had to put up with menial job as a waitress at Walker's Restaurant.

While working there, she used to be paid Sh 150 only per day despite the long working hours.

By God's grace, she got employed at the Kenya's Broadcasting Company hosting children's variety shows earning Ksh500 per episode.

Thereafter she moved on from KBC and had stints at several radio and TV stations including Hot 96, Q FM and KTN News.
