Ex Switch-TV host Joyce Maina has talked about her insecurities growing up.

The outspoken host says she has had to accept that no one is perfect.

Speaking on a podcast on Kwambox TV, Joyce shared, "Back in the day, I could not go out without makeup.

I was also very insecure about my small chest and being skinny. with time I started gainging weight and I was inscure about that as well.

I have overcome those insecurities now but we are human so there are new insecurities every day."

"You could overpower in a fight but I had a very sleek mouth. That is why I was never bullied."

Radio personality Sheila Kwamboka, also known as Kambox, says she had insecurities about her feet growing at a very high rate.

"When I was in primary school my feet used to grow really big. Every term my dad had to buy me new shoes.

My dad used to joke that I should go and get married to a cobbler."

Kwamboka says when she joined high school she would get mocked about her shoe size. But she decided to handle it like a boss.

"When I was going to form 1 I was wearing size 41 and my dad bought me 2 sizes bigger. The kids would call me Godzilla. I went back home and told my dad I wanted my actual shoe size. I even cried. I had to become confident with time they accepted it."
