Lynn Ngugi Age and Background
Lynn Ngugi hasn’t revealed much about her actual age at the moment. Speaking on where she grew up, Lynn is a true Nairobian born and raised in Nairobi. Ngugi grew up in a single room in the Huruma estate alongside her three sisters.
Her mother was a small businesswoman who would purchase shoes at Gikomba and sell them at a profit. Her hardworking mother always wanted the best for them and she worked hard and moved from a single room to a double room and eventually owned a house of their own.
She attended her primary level in local schools based in Nairobi and later joined high school completing her studies in 2004. She then joined the East Africa School of Media Studies where she pursued a Degree in Mass Communication/ Broadcast Journalism.
Being one of the best journalists in the country, Lynn pursued media at the University and her dream was to become a broadcast journalist after school. However, after completing her education, securing a job as a broadcast journalist wasn’t easy.
Due to a lack of an opportunity in the media industry, she moved to the middle east where she secured a job and saved most of her salary with an aim of investing in her native country.
After jetting back to Kenya she had a plan of starting her own talk show. She took the first step and shot a pilot for her audience named Kilimani Mums Talk Show. Despite investing a good amount in the pilot she was hit with a major pullback after the pilot went viral.
One of the biggest media houses decided to sue her for copyright and trademark infringement. Being a newbie in the industry she lost the case the talk show plans were shuttered before taking the second step.
Additionally, she has also invested in other areas but the investments ended up sinking and she was left between a rocky and hard place with even zero amount to pay the landlord.
In her lowest moment with zero ideas about where to start, a friend of hers from the university called her for a gig to report some news for TUKO during the 2017 general election.
She did an impressive job on her first assignment and she was awarded another gig and she killed it again. Following her stunning job Tuko wasn’t ready to let her go and she was put on probation before she was eventually handed a permanent position by the online news company.
Lynn went on to become a source of inspiration with the stories she aired on the company’s channel and many people started reaching out to her to listen and air their stories.
Five years down the line, Lynn Ngugi left TUKO and started her own Youtube Channel where she airs different human interest stories. So far the journey has been successful and she has managed to gather a huge following on her youtube channel.
