By Charles Gachango | March 26th 2021
Executive CV - AGNES NONSIZI NG'ETHE - PR & COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGIST, TERAZO NEW MEDIA.
Education: Technical University of Kenya.
Experience: Award-winning public relations and communications strategist with more than eight years’
experience in media and entertainment.
Awards/recognition: I won the Zuri Awards 2019 in the media category.
First job/salary: My first job ever was at Ensvalley Bakery, which was at Nakumatt Village Market. I was a sales
promotion girl earning Sh5,000 per month.
First/current neighborhood: I grew up in Kagongo Village in Kiambu County and I still live in Kiambu.
Worst/best job: My best job was as a TV host. I had a reggae show on Kameme TV and a Mugithi show on Mt Kenya TV.
My worst job was at a certain record label in Kenya. The work environment was so toxic it took a toll on my mental and physical health.
Worst mistake ever: I choose to see it as a lesson; I should have sought financial literacy in my early 20s to start saving and investing early enough, but now I know better.
One thing you cannot give away: My energy, I love it so much.
One unforgettable person: My father (may his soul rest in peace). I am a copy and paste of him. He was a happy soul and his laughter was everything. He was also a very hardworking man.
Best advice ever: If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you are not
sure you can do it, say yes, then learn how to do it later - Richard Branson.
