Olive Eyotaru, reporter Uganda Radio Network (URN)



A Legsus 1990 model. Hahahahaa; well, I haven’t owned a car yet. I am still in the footsibishi class.

I use boda bodas and taxis. Boda bodas are convenient given the annoying traffic jam in the city. But I am aiming at acquiring a simple car- preferably the Toyota Ist in a few months.

I would love to own a Range Rover Sport. Yes, my dream is valid because the first time I sat in one, the comfort was just unexplainable. I must own one, God willingly.

I was a features writer at Ultimate Media Consult, a news agency in my second year at Uganda Christian University, Mukono.

I currently work at Uganda Radio Network, a news agency as a political, health and human rights reporter. I mainly cover stories in my beat. I also have interests in the sports field.

I believe passion for journalism and hard work drove me to greater heights.

I own an iPhone 4S- Old model yeah, but I can’t keep my hands off it.

FAV MOVIE/series
I have a few favourite movies but Sound of Music and Maid in Manhattan tag at my heartstrings any day.

Give me chapati and beef any day.

Let me wear a bullet proof; I bite my nails when angry or sad. But I am outgrowing the vice.

I am inspired by people who go against all odds to succeed in life, regardless of the hurdles and naysayers.

I read somewhere that: “Though you can love what you do not master, you cannot master what you do not love.” It all goes down to passion for me.
