Even in darkness you find yourself.
A bold headline welcomes you on Janet Mbugua’s latest blog post which is a somewhat sad yet encouraging story on her journey to becoming a news anchor in South Africa.
In the post, Janet talks about her woes of getting a work permit for South Africa even when she had been successfully headhunted as a news anchor for eNews Africa. In the end, she did the get work permit but year in year out, she would go through the same trouble and it drained her – it’s no wonder that even after she got a five-year work permit, she resigned; she wanted to come back home where she would not have to chase work permits; a place where she would feel at home and be with her family and friends.
Lady luck was on her side cause shortly after returning to Kenya, she got a job at Citizen TV up until recently. When one door closes, others open…
Janet decided to do a photo shoot (shot by Lyra Aoko and body art by Lindsay Dawn Adhiambo) to accompany that particular blogpost and the results are uh-mazing!
