Just yesterday, Julie Gichuru announced that she will be soon sharing the same stage with Richard Branson, singer Usher and Nigerian star Dbanj. She is a woman of outstanding achievements. Apart from having interviewed presidents and started her own successful businesses, she is an inspirational public figure.

She recently introduced U.S. President Obama and our President Uhuru Kenyatta to stage during the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Nairobi.

Here are some of the things that make her the most successful TV personality in Kenya.

1. She has successfully raised a family


Despite her busy daily schedule and the intense pressure that comes with it, Julie Gichuru has managed to raise her kids. It is not easy to pay attention to family needs and still advance progressively in your career. Most moms sometimes sacrifice a part of their life to raising their kids. With that, she is definitely a strong woman. Young girls can look up to her. She is a role model.

2. First African Woman to receive the Martin Luther King Salute to Greatness


This came by due to her efforts in advocacy for non violence during the 2007 general elections. The post-election violence saw many Kenyans lose their lives and property worth millions of shillings destroyed. This was a trying moment for the nation and she played a crucial role in helping bring peace to the country again.

Overcoming challenge number 3 is a major achievement! >>
