Reaching out a hand!

Now onto the next news my dear bloggers. :)
Most of you who know me and the work I do, you are aware that I am a Goodwill Ambassador for Reach A Hand Uganda (RAHU).
The World Aids Day Campaign 2012
Lately, I have been shooting health skits with RAHU and it is fun and also a learning experience for some of the participants who hope to be serious actors someday. We hope to reach out to various youths out there with our educative messages. Soon, I will share the health skits with you when they are ready. :)
To those of you who do not know RAHU, check out our website and stay in touch with what we are doing.

Go on and do something for someone else, reach out. Reach a hand either with advise, assistance or just listening. Let us help our youths get on the path to their destiny/dreams. I urge you to pursue your dreams & not give up! Have self respect & make the decisions that will add to your life, not take away from it. All the best to you.


Hello my blog darlings,
Been away a while but been busy. My oh my, have I got lots to tell you!! :)
Where do I start?...
Okay, I will begin with my role in an awesome new DSTV series, the first East African Telenovela titled "KONA". It premiered towards the end of last month (August) at Serena Hotel in Uganda, as well as in Nairobi,Kenya and in Tanzania. All premieres were successful with an interesting and excited number of guests. There was a mini boxing match to complement the events.
In my role as JAKKI
I play the character of a young girl named Jakki. She is a wannabe boxer who is trying to reconnect with her father since her mother took her away to Uganda when she was a little girl. Jakki is her father's daughter; strong-headed and stubborn like him and wants to be a boxer, just like him! This is one thing her father cannot hear of though. Catch the drama that ensues when Jakki shows up unexpectedly at her aunt's doorstep. You will enjoy every moment! :) I had to train every day while on set from January til the time I finished shooting my scenes. I must say I enjoyed every bit; got more fit, learned boxing and worked with a great bunch of talented people; both cast and crew! The directors and producers were amazing, so was the whole production team. It was a wonderful experience and I am grateful I made it through the auditions for this role. :) KONA!!

Cast: Janet Sision, Brenda Wairimu & Nini Wacera
