Time flies, can you believe we are already past the half year mark? Just the other day we welcomed the New Year with long lists of resolutions. Well, the year doesn’t feel so new anymore, it’s that time of the year when energy levels sink, we get sucked into the routine of life and many times become complacent. All these are symptoms of Mid Year blues.

Growing up, I was a ‘someday girl’. I had dreams of someday publishing a book, someday working for a newspaper, someday being an editor, someday. Until one day many years later I woke up to the realization that someday was today; the only assurance we have, not 2 years from now or tomorrow but today.

For some April habitually brings in to mind Spring; sunshine, blooming flowers, the green of trees and sliding into flip flops. For me, April is just April because luckily where I live the beauty of ‘Spring’ and getting high on Vitamin D is something I experience every day.

As I kid, one of my all time favorite TV shows was 'The Jefferson’s'. As I write this, the theme song is playing in my head. “Well we’re movin’ on up, to the east side, moving on up, to a deluxe apartment in the sky. Moving on up, to the east side, moving on up,we finally got a piece of the pie.

February is a special month, apart from the red roses, boxes of chocolate, great deals and the romance, it’s also the month we celebrate the history and contributions of African American men and women to society in the name of Black History Month.

The year has literally flown by, I can't believe it's already December. To many, December is a month of in depth self evaluation and stock taking; taking that walk down memory lane to see if you accomplished the goals you set at the beginning of the year.It's also about looking at your present to see what has worked for you or what you need to eliminate before you head on to the new year.

Sesame Mosweu Making Moves

Posted by AfroElle On 9:57 AM
Sesame Mosweu is taking Bostwana media industry by storm; a true MOGUL in the making. She is not only a radio and TV presenter but an actress, lawyer and entrepreneur. Sesame has been on radio for 4 years and television since she was 19 years old. Her television career began when she presented a kids show called 'Bounce' that was aired on Botswana Television for 13 successful episodes. She then expanded to action with a role in the Number One Ladies Detective Agency, Soul City One Love Campaign; 'Second Chances' film and Re Bina Mmogo Season 3 (a local series that airs on BTV) and presented the Mascom 1 Million Pula Cash Give Away.

Sesame currently presents The Fat Boy Challenge; a reality show that focuses on people who change their lives and lose weight for charity thats airs on e-Botswana (a sister station to e-TV) annually. The FatBoy Challenge happens to be the first reality show in Botswana and it is an initiative by Yarona FM.

What does your work entail?

As a radio presenter, I host an evening show on Yarona FM, the biggest youth radio station called The Nightcap that is between 19h00-23h00. It is the second most popular show in Gaborone according to the National Broadcasting Board Radio Survey results conducted in 2010.

My biggest project right now is putting together my legal show. I graduated in 2010 from the University of Botswana with a Law Degree and I can finally conceptualize a show that will merge my two passions; Media and the law. I am at the point of putting together sponsors for the show.

Are you living YOUR dream?

Partly, I am because I do what I love. I enjoy working in the media industry so much that I would do it for free. If my radio and television jobs did not pay me I’d get a job to pay bills and still do them for free simply because I enjoy them so much. I am not where I want to be as yet, my dreams are HUGE, so big they scare me and they get bigger as I reach each goal I set for myself. I want a media empire and I will get there, without a doubt.

I also want to act in a continental project; I am ready for that kind of responsibility and challenge. It’s been 6 years and I am ready. I would love to see my legal show finally on air but because of my perfectionist nature I understand everything has to be in order before it airs.

What’s your definition of success and how has your journey been like to where you are now?

Success is a state of balance. Where all aspects of my life are in check and are at harmony with one another that is financially, spiritually, physically and emotionally. I wouldn't want to be a billionaire but be a bad mother. However at this point my career is a very pressing priority, I am 100% focused on it.

My journey to this point in my career has been a learning process; I am always trying to learn something new. Even in difficult times I ask 'what can I learn from this?’ Once am confident in the lesson I have learnt, I move on.

The number one lesson I have learnt is DO YOU! I focus entirely on me and what I would like to be, where I want to go. I have learnt that nothing is for free, if you want great things, your work ethic better be great, and your challenges will be great too, what matters is what you do in those times of challenges.

Any words of advice or role models that have inspired you or changed your life?

There are numerous people whom I have drawn inspiration from over the years; I love people who have turned nothing into something because they refused to give up even when the going got tough. Perseverance is an inspiring trait right up there with creativity, hard work, patience, vision and dignity. So people like Oprah, Steve Jobs, and Thomas Edison to name a few. Never let anyone tell you that you are incapable of doing something, it’s your dream, why would you let anyone kill it.

What advice would you give women so that they can go out of their comfort zones and start making moves in their lives and society?

I was made aware of a little difference between men and women, this of course has exceptions. That women are more afraid of rejection that women and for you to be the best at what you do, you must knock on doors, ask for more opportunities and milk what is at your disposal like your life depends on it. We women hate to be turned down, I would like to believe men do too its just that they can brush it off quicker and move on. Don't be afraid of rejection, it’s just a word. You will be amazed how many doors can open when you won’t stop knocking.
