“I liked how she acted. Up to now. She is a good actor. I would say, I can also give her a run for her money.”

Florence Nampijja, who works with BBS Terefayina and has acted in a number of well-received movies and television shows – shared that while talking about how girls who look up to her can also chart their career paths.

She said having a mentor or looking up to someone and studying how they do things can help a great deal.
