So sad!! Many Kenyan MEN will cry after this – SARAH HASSAN is gone
Ex-Citizen TV actress, Sarah Hassan, has left Kenya for US to pursue her dream in Film and TV. Sarah will be studying at New York Film Academy and her fiancé has decided to move there with her.
Here is her post……….
Growing up, I was always in plays, sports, math clubs, science contests, lets just say I was an active kid, when I got out of high school, I wanted to study math as that had been my strongest suit and Act because that was something I loved to do. I was blessed to be able to do that, I studied actuarial science in JKUAT Karen, acted and hosted TV shows alongside many amazing, talented colleagues and friends in East Africa.
From when I was young, in school and was able to understand film and TV, I always wanted to go to Film school specifically New York Film Academy in Los Angeles to learn and understand more, but some dreams take longer to accomplish.
Immediately I started to work, I started saving up for school fees and two years ago, I started filling out my application. Every other day I used to look at my application and work harder. Early last year my fiancé, who was my boyfriend then encouraged me to send in my application and I got accepted(YAAAAAAAYYY), I wouldn’t have been able to get this far without my mum, dad and my entire family who have always been there for me, supporting me every step of the way, not forgetting my closest friends, yes… you know who you are.
To top it off when Martin, the love of my life, the amazing man who has supported me in everything I do, asked me to marry him, he also surprised me by getting two tickets to L.A, his and mine, he decided to move with me as I study and try to pursue my dream and I love him more for that. It is a scary, exciting dream. A new chapter in my life and I am so grateful to God for everything he has blessed me with so far. 2015 was an amazing year, winning Best Host for Discovery +254 at the Kalasha awards, walking away with best journalist of the year at the Swahili Fashion week, getting to work with the amazing Jokate Mwegelo from Tanzania on Maisha Max, the love of my life Mr. Martin Dale, proposing to me, and getting accepted to the prestigious New York Film Academy.
