Over the past few years that Juliet Bawuah has been at it, the TV3 sports producer and presenter has managed to be everybody’s darling girl, ‘kicking’ ( in high heels) her way through the hearts of the millions she reaches online, on air, in print, and on television.
Young, and rising, she fits the perfect description of an idea whose time has come. Slowly, she has toed an impressive career path.
She has worked with Metro TV, E.tv (Ghana), and Citi FM. She has also written for the global football website, Goal.com, and currently does same, for cafonline.com, the official website of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
In the last few years, she’s interviewed the likes of former Manchester United player, Winfred Zaha, Spanish World Cup winning coach Vicente Del Bosque, Abedi Pele, a chunk of both the old and new generation of the current Black Stars team, as well as some of football’s leading administrators.
Doing this for well over half a decade, she must have hit the road block some few times, feeling all weary and wanting to give up, but she says she has grown to accept that every professions comes with its own hazards.
“I used to worry about the heckling and sometimes the treatment of near contempt by persons who thought you had no business being in here. But I have grown to accept that some of life’s most treasured assets take a while before they mature.”
“I believe I am a work in progress; one day, when all is said and done, I can look back and smile.”
Juliet Bawuah holds a BA Degree in Journalism and Public Relations from the Ghana Institute of Journalism, and a Diploma in Communication Studies from the African University College of communications.
