She is definitely a force to reckon with.
Inspiration to bring the school to establishment came after numerous aspiring presenters reached out to her for mentorship. That is when she found it fit to help them tap into their talent and make the most out of them. “I also realised that the television industry is growing. More television shows are being created and bought by the government through their channels. There is a need for more quality television hosts,” she highlighted.
Even if she was hesitant to reveal local celebrity presenters she will engage, she will engage them also on her classes to also give lessons. “I cannot mention names right now, but it will definitely be people with experience and who are great at their job,” she said. Having been doing television presenting for a lengthy period now and having a strong background in television, the unintimidated television host saw a glitch hence she chose to finally give back her talent to people who look up to her.

Creativity is seen everywhere and these individuals did something recently that’s never been done before, and some are still killing it. We see creativity on streaming platforms, stages, runways, social media and boardrooms even. Some of them are revamping their businesses, and lately, clothing sale is thriving.
They love concept-driven designs, storytelling and they bring fresh ideas and new perspectives that will leave footprints in the sand. Post the COVID-19 pandemic, these creative minds utilized the drawing board and they became cognizant that monetizing content will actually take them far, which is frank nonetheless.
This is commendable though, but the creative industry will still need support from government in order for it to flourish further. Allocation of resources (funds, facilities and empowerment) should be done consistently, creativity must be raised and at the end of the day, the economy benefits from that kind of investment.
