Citizen TV news anchor Julie Gichuru started off her education at St Christophers School in Nairobi and at the age of eight attended the Green Herald in Bangladesh where her father was posted for military training. On returning to Kenya Julie spent a term at Karen C school based in Karen before transferring to Loreto Convent Msongari in Standard Four.
In Form 2 Julie convinced her parents to transfer her from the local 8-4-4 system to a GCE boarding school and she joined Imani School in Thika for Form 3 and 4. It would have been strange for her to join another school having made that decision but she actually enjoyed every bit of it as she stated on Monday night when she shared the pic from her album.
“Going through my old pics and found this gem, taken with my Ugandan friends & classmates Muna & Vanessa. Note the typewriters in our ‘state of the art’ business class located on the top half of a Banda! I must say I loved my Imani experience in the middle of the pineapple plantations of Del Monte in Thika!”Julie Gichuru captioned.
After this she spent two Semesters at USIU before transferring to UK where she did a one year pre-University Course at Warwick University. Julie then accepted a place at the University of Wales, Cardiff for her Law Degree. Once complete she worked for a year to help finance her Masters degree and completed her Masters in Business Administration at the same University. For a brief period Julie did her pupillage at Hamilton, Harrison & Matthews Advocates in Nairobi before pursuing a different career path in the media.
