Yvonne Okwara's ascent to the top is one that is so difficult to forget because it was such a difficult and winding path from humble beginnings to a position of grace.
On March 16, 1983, the sweetheart of many was welcomed into the world as the third and final child of a family of three.
After completing her primary education at All Saints Cathedral Primary School in Nairobi, she went on to complete her secondary education at Kianda High School.
Her effort, resolve, and enthusiasm enabled her to make the transition to the campus of the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, where she continued her education and pursued her academic goals.
Many people are unaware of the fact that at one point in her life, she was forced to work in a low-paying job as a waitress at Walker's Restaurant. This is something that is a little-known fact about her.
Despite the lengthy hours that she was required to work, she was only paid Sh 150 each day while she was employed there.
She was given a job at the Kenya Broadcasting Company where she hosts children's variety shows and earns Ksh500 per episode. This was all thanks to the grace of God.
After that, she left her position at KBC and went on to work at a variety of radio and television stations, including Hot 96, Q FM, and KTN News, among others.
At the moment, she is employed by Royal Media Services (Citizen TV), where she works as a senior News Anchor and Editor responsible for Research and Planning.
It is speculated that she brings in at least Sh 500,000 in total monthly compensation, which includes all of her allowances.
