Former Citizen TV news anchor Julie Gichuru has opened up on battling depression, after her parents divorced.

In a post seen by Pulse Live, Julie said that she was only 21 and in college, when her parents parted ways and her father remarried.

According to her, she did not have a home to go back to, because her mother had also migrated and she did not have money to complete her Law Degree at the University of Cadiff.

Ms Gichuru revealed that she got angry at God for letting things get out of hand to that extent, but later on secured two jobs that helped her through college.

1995 - 21 years old. 2nd year of LLB Law, in University in Cardiff Wales, UWCC. I was in the throes of deep depression. My parents divorced, Dad remarried and Mum emigrated. I had no home to go back to. I didn't have enough money to complete my degree. I was frightened and anxious. I lamented with God, I told Him I was so angry with Him, but I still loved Him and I asked Him to hold me tight and never let me go. I found two jobs at this point and studied hard. I didn't know where I would end up but I knew knowledge would get me there. As long as I had breath in my body, I was going to get there. #Excelsior #NoLimits #AwesomeLord Never doubt that you can get there. Never stop moving forward. Lots of love,’’ read her post.

Julie Gichuru’s words come months after she opened up on how the loss of her child left her and husband devastated.

"In spite of our devastation and grief we kept our faith. One year later the Lord God blessed us with a child, and we named him Wangai, because we knew he was a gift, we had learnt that ultimately all children belong to God,” she said.
