Anne Kiguta has for the first time talked about her first job. The mother of three revealed that she started working at 18 years as a presenter at Hope FM.
While narrating her story on her Instagram, Kiguta said she used to walk from airport view estate near T-mall to NPC Valley Road.
She reshared a photo (of her and DJ Moz back in 2005) Raburu had posted, and accompanied it with her story, just to drive the point home.
Thank you @willisraburu for reminding how far I’ve come!! I was 18. First job at Hope Fm. Really earning peanuts. No what’s less than peanuts? Half a peanut? That’s what I was earning. I’d leave the Daystar Athi River campus, drop off at Airport view estate and literally walk all the way to NPC valley road… actually it was more like run! Why walk, because I had choose between the luxury of getting on a bus or a cab or saving that fare. The bus would get to Nairobi at 5:30pm & I’d be in studio at 6:30pm. Always exhausted but just so thankful to be on air and having the time of my life with this guy! I could cater for my little expenses with my few shillings from this gig,’ she wrote in part.
Unlike many celebrities who were born with silver spoons, Anne Kiguta is from a humble family.
Like most of us, I wasn’t born with much more than a loving and decent family. And like my family I had to learn how to work for any little thing I had. And I always have. Sure we were not “poor” in the sense that my parents could afford to take me school and I went to some pretty good schools but bottom line- you had to work. Looking back I’m so thankful for that. Cause if you learn how to build it, no one will ever be able to take it away from you (try as they might),’ she explained.
The K24 political affairs journalist is grateful to God for far she has come. She is among the top-ranked female media personalities around.
So here I am with @Mozdj and especially today looking back at how far I’ve come. My career has been incredible! There isn’t anyone that I haven’t been able to interview from the President and counting, and more than once. I was going to post a “beautiful“ picture but no, thank you Willis. This is the beautiful one. The one that reminds me how I had no idea that one day God would take me from nowhere and put me on a national stage. And not just put me there, give me authority in my calling. That I could speak and it would matter! This is the picture that reminds me He is still the same God and is still going to take me places and leave me speechless at what He will do. Can’t wait to frame it! Hopefully this will be the picture that will also remind you with God all things are possible. ❤️ (please tag ever gossip blog in town. Come see how good God has been to me.)
