Q. Take us through your media journey.
I studied Broadcasting at Limkokwing University before joining RB2 in 2009 as a Sports Presenter.
I then moved to Btv in 2012, initially as a Sports Reporter and then as a Producer (‘The Eye’ and ‘Matlho a Phage’ – current affairs programs).
In 2014 I was transferred to Chobe to Kasane Btv Station.
