I wanted to be a doctor - Vera Sidika

But fame came calling.

And Vera Sidika is no different. When growing up Vera Sidika one of the most famous East African video vixens and socialites had a natural flair for Biology and it made her consider Medicine as her number one career choice. But she wasn’t willing to do the time.

“I was very good at Biology. If medicine wasn’t a lineup of years I would have been a doctor today. I just don’t have the patience to be in school forever. I watch live surgery videos with bodies cut open with no blinks or scare.” She confessed.

After dropping the medicine dream Vera Sidika chose to pursue Interior Design at Kenyatta University before dropping out after her new found fame.

And two years ago she decided to go back to school, she broke the news on social media with a post that read “Education is very important. Only had 2 semesters left to clear before I got into showbiz & it hasn’t been easy. School, work, travel but been trying so hard to finish and get my degree. You may have the fame and the money…but an investment in knowledge always pays the best interests. #KU #StreetSmart #BookSmart.’’
