Journalism is becoming one of the scariest professions in the world, specifically in Africa where practitioners are subjected to all forms of life-threatening hostilities including bloody murders.
However, the devastating state of the profession is not deterring others from venturing into it, as people are racing against all odds to make into the fraternity.
Sharon Mbabazi from Kenya is a young woman who lost her mother when she was only 5 years old, and at age six, she started construction work together with her siblings to make ends meet.
“I lost my mum when I was five-years old. I grew up with my dad and four siblings,” she is quoted as saying.
She is reported as having told NBS Television that her plight worsened when her father who was a mine worker also suffered a debilitating accident, making her the family’s breadwinner by default.
