Betty Kyallo has had one of the most fascinating years of her life. After quitting her job at media company Mediamax, many didn’t expect her to come back to the limelight so quickly.
Not only did she re-launch her beauty parlor, “Flair By Betty” but she also went all out and bought a brand new Porsche, proving to the public that she was still thriving.
That indomitable spirit is one that she has honed over the years, one that she didn’t have when she was starting out in the media industry.
Betty recently revealed how hard it had been for her when she entered the media industry as an intern on KTN but it wasn’t as smooth as she would have wanted it to be, talking about the intimidation she felt;
Most times I always felt that I was not good enough especially the first years on TV. I was a colleague to people who were doing so great, Cynthia Nyamai, Beatrice Marshall and I always felt intimidated. Sometimes I would go on air and shrub, feel like I did not do my research enough. Many times I would go home and feel like I should have done better.
“It used to be really hard and many times I would question whether I should be in this career, but somehow it happened.”
Those experiences molded her into the person she became with bubbly personality admitting about her leaving K24;
“I feel like this break that I took after resigning was very important because it has really made me hustle hard! Most of us love employment, to get cushioned under a salary but when it is removed, then it becomes really really difficult to keep it going, to survive,” she admits.
She clarified that the TV screens are not her place for now, she needs change.
“We’re still thinking and weighing our options,” she left it that.
