It takes a lot for one to get their dream job and believe me, very few get to experience the joy of doing what they love. However, TV anchor Lilian Muli counts herself among the lucky people who have the chance to show off their skills after landing her dream job – even when at a young age!
The celebrated news anchor recently shared a post talking about some of the few ‘struggles’ she faced before getting where she is today. From her post, it is easy to say that she did not give up on chasing her dream even when it seemed impossible. She wrote saying:
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…
Instead of changing careers because of being rejected…seems that Lilian Muli went back and strengthened her weaknesses and for this reason we can now catch her reading news on Citizen TV!
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 everyone 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
