Farida Karoney gives Lillian Muli first chance to shine
Lillian Muli says she wanted to be a journalist from the word go. She reveals that Farida Karoney gave her the first chance to be a journalist when she sent her video demo.
“Once upon a time I used to spend hours before a mirror talking to myself Pretending to read the news or posing as a reporter on location. I wanted so bad to be a journalist…I saw a newspaper ad and sent a video demo to Farida Karoney at NTV to be honest I didn’t think anyone would watch it but she did ( I’m sure she doesn’t remember) I was called for a screen test I was only 19; I was pre-selected together with others I didn’t make the final three though,” wrote Lillian in part.
The Citizen TV anchor thanked Karoney and all other people who played a pivotal role in her career. Lillian further says she still has more to achieve even when it looks like she’s at the pinnacle of journalism.
“A couple of years later i met Farida again at KTN as an intern…this time i made it after the screen test. I look back and I’m so grateful to every one who believed in me…so many people held my hand and I will never forget. I’m still dreaming I have so much more to achieve IJN…Your dream is never too big or ambitious. #Blessed #grateful #humbledheart”
