“When growing up I was inspired by Maureen Nkandu. She was exceptionally good. And I always told my Dad I will read the news one day like Maureen Nkandu”

Patricia was at Mpelembe Primary school from grade one to grade seven ,then she went to Twashuka secondary school where she studied her grade eight and nine and eventually completed her grade 12 at Hellen Kaunda in 2001.

Due to lack of sponsorship, Patricia stopped school and was out of school for a total of eight years But because she was determined to be educated and become a broadcaster she started evening classes and re-wrote her grade nine and passed. It was a tough time as she had to work to pay for school and sustain herself.

Her first job was peeling cassava in a factory in Kitwe, she later worked as cashier in a shop and waitress in a restaurant and casino, all these jobs helped pay for her education and she studied for her Grade 12 certificate which she eventually attained in 2001.
