LIFE OF A FEMALE BUDDING SPORTS JOURNALIST

Lillian Namaganda Katongole at Top TV

Being a sports journalist needs perseverance, having passion for it and also giving in as much time as possible. Juggling both academics and journalism is not an easy thing to do unless you’re a strong person. Getting into Sports Journalism started in 2016, and when I joined University, Makerere University Business School (MUBS), things triggered a bit since I always worked on URBAN TV, STAR FM and at the same time had to focus a lot on my books at a young age. Attending both never at any moment gave me a reason to give up since I knew am a strong woman who tussled in everything. Above all knowing that I serve a living God. Making matters worse, was that I became a leader at the same time (Sports Minister) 2017 – 2018Oooooshhh one could imagine what a 21 year old could do to balance all things at the same time. Jumpy, stubborn, Go-getter but disciplined as am known for, helped me go on for all the 3years have been at the university. For fear to lose any of the stuff I was doing made me work harder, focus more to achieve it all. And on January 16, 2020, I graduated with a bachelor’s Degree in Human Resource Management from MUBS. Currently work as a volunteer in the Publications Unit, (MUBS) and also a Sports analyst on 102.1 FUFA FM every Saturday from 10am-12pm and presenter on TOP TV.
