SU: Tell me about yourself?
Sasha: First and foremost am a God fearing lady brought up in a family of two children me being the first born, my brother is just 10 years. I am quite reserved, I may say pretty hard for me to make friends. I live in a small world with a few people in my circle, am very ambitious, talkative when it comes to my work of course am paid to talk, hahaha and lastly I have a strong passion for fashion.
SU: When did you join TV and how?
Sasha: I joined Tv in my S3 that was in 2011 officially. However, the previous year 2010, I was in the making of becoming a tv personality and this was after I emerged Miss teens 2009 then organised by record tv and a couple of more sponsors. It was a time for my breakthrough to the limelight, deals came to me here and there but of course I was too young to make my own choices so my parents got involved. My mum supported me so much from day 1 of starting tv but I could laugh at myself with such thoughts running through my mind “how can I spend my time talking to cameras which can’t even respond to me”. It was a challenge at first because I did not see myself becoming a television personality but then God always plans and shapes our future better than we ever can. [adrotate banner=”3″]
SU: How do you find TV career?
Sasha: Of course in all we do, there must be a strike of balance. Tv has been such an amazing experience, meeting new people, working on different exciting projects, getting exposed to the kind of life most youth desire but on the other side, it has been challenging. First I thank my mother who taught me how to stand as a lady with direction in life otherwise there are a lot of things that can take you up in this kind of world because of the exposure, things of living up to the celebrity lives, not missing parties, fear of being judged extra, all these this would have made me lose my way but I decided to be patient at heart.
Sasha is one of the best upcoming tv stars
SU: What do you think of the Ugandan TV industry? Sasha: Ugandan TV industry, uhmmm…looks like everyone is becoming a tv personality that is totally loosing meaning. We can’t live up to the International level but a bit of revamping is needed.

Sasha: In the next five years, Well I see myself having completed my degree in social science at Makerere University, am a CEO of Sash Fash collection, fashion collector of trendy ladies outfits though doing e-commerce for now, one orders and pays on delivery so in 5 years God willingly, Sash Fash label will be in existence physically.
