"—— Resilience ——" she wrote on X. "In 2012, He [sic] dismissed me from my first job at 'Campus 101' on Urban TV. Today, I co-host the morning show with him to recount his journey, and here we stand. Bush Baby expressed, 'I am proud of you.” It was a pleasure having you on."

One Chozen Michael responded to the post: "Its [sic] a testimony everyone deserves to have some day [sic]."

Collins Atafiire had another angle to it: "But still both of you don't own TV stations."

Born Annet Nambooze, Oze, who is a teacher by profession, launched her media career at the Vision Group-owned television station during her first year at university. She was among the first employees of the youth-facing media company when it was starting.

Annet Nambooze, known professionally as Anna Talia Oze, was born on October 10, 1992, in Lungujja, a neighborhood within the Rubaga Division of Kampala, Uganda. Her birth date is to be confirmed (TBC).

Raised in a family of four siblings, Anna is the third child. The divorce of her parents during her primary school years led to her and her siblings being taken into the custody of their grandfather, Waswa Lule, a direct descendant of Yusuf Kironde Lule, a former President of Uganda.

Anna's educational journey began at Lungujja Nursery School, progressed through St. Mary's Nabbingo and Lungujja Hill Primary School, and continued at Alliance Secondary School in Lungujja for her O-Level studies.

She completed her A-Level education at Old Kampala S.S. Pursuing higher education, she enrolled in Makerere University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Education, with a specialization in Literature in English. She completed her teaching practice at King's College Budo.

Her television career kicked off shortly after finishing S.6, with her first role being the host of Campus 1on1, a university-focused show on Urban TV. After three years with Urban TV, she was let go, which led her to positions at Record TV and then Delta TV, departing each station after six and five months, respectively. Following these roles, she worked at Radio 4, which is owned by businessman Balaam Barugahara.

In 2018, Anna made a significant career move to Next Media, the conglomerate behind NBS TV and Sanyuka TV, after leaving Spark TV. Besides her media career, Anna ventured into politics, running for the position of Rubaga North Lord Woman Councillor in 2021, though she did not win the election.
