Since then she has been sharing key moments from the trip and what it means to her brand. 

“Big Girl, Big God, Big Dreams 🇰🇪 Tyler Perry Studios Luncheon,” she said.

“How I settled on ‘Kate the actress’ as my handle ?? Well, for the longest time, Acting was considered a co-curricular activity or a hobby NOT a Career here in Kenya. ‘ What else do you do apart from Acting ?’ (The most irritating & discouraging question to ever ask an actor ) . Fortunately, the narrative has now changed, and I am honored to have been part of this tremendous progress in our industry. Dear young Actor/thespian we lit the tunnel when we couldn’t see or find the light, you can take it from here, the world is your oyster 🙌🏾🇰🇪… with love Aunty Kate,”.
