Capital FM presenter and NTV Uganda Evening news anchor, Flavia Tumusiime, is telling 30 of the best stories from her life and career for the next 30 days.
Today I tell you about my little journey to NTV.
In 2012, I received a call by then manager at NTV Kenya.
He and I had a long chat about how he had watched me on Big Brother Africa and was proud of me and believed that my next step should be towards news and that I would grow into a very good anchor.
I said NO.
My reasons were; I wasn’t interested and that I had never even considered it and that my career was going another direction.
We spoke for long and he sounded disappointed but at the end of the call he said to me “you will do this one day and I hope when you do, you remember our conversation”.
Well, see how God works, Maurice Mugisha a long-time friend had also persuaded me to go since he was working there and I said no still.
This year we sat for negotiations with Maurice who now is my boss to join as a news anchor and I slowly reflected and was grateful, that the position was always mine, just not the timing.
Here is my word to you, you know what you want to do and what you want to be, but are you selling yourself short?
Are you dreaming small? Are you speaking greatness?
