Betty Elated

“This happened today. I honestly appreciate the interest. Goodness number 7😅😅😅

Truth is I have Been through many highs and lows in life and having started my media career so young I’ve gone through most of it in the public eye which is never easy. It’s actually quite tough. It’s like living your youth plus young adult life with everyone watching.

What gives me so much gratitude about all this is that I have inspired many people along the way with my journey through life. That you can be authentic about yourself and you can love who you are unapologetically” reads Betty Kyallo’s post in part.
