“I always wonder why it took so long, since then, when I start talking to someone we can’t go past three months because I feel that’s long enough to know someone,” Lynn said.

Contrary to claims on social media, the media personality denied the allegations mentioning that the little girl is her niece.
“However, I have accepted the title, I’m a mother to many people, I find myself being close to many people. I’m an aunt to a wonderful niece and nephew, but it’s important for people to verify first,” Lynn added.
Elsewhere, Lynn is the CEO and founder of Lynn Ngugi Network.

She later secured a job at a restaurant that provided accommodation and a work permit.
”Just a few days before the expiration of her visiting visa, Costa Coffee called me back. I explained to them my situation, and they offered to give me accommodation and a work permit visa. That’s how I began my work as a coffee barista,” Lynn said.
Although she was making money and affording to send some home, she got depressed owing to a lack of fulfillment and decided to quit and return to Kenya after six months.
“Every day I woke up and started making coffee, I would get depressed. I was unfulfilled because I wasn’t following my passion
“I would see my classmates doing well in Kenya, and this reminded me of the dreams I wanted to chase. I had goals to pursue. This made me quit my job and come back home,” she said.
Lynn returned home but she did not get any satisfying job and returned abroad to work as a project manager at Qatar Foundation Research and Development.
She worked between 2013 and 2016.
She landed a job at TUKO where she worked until 2021 when she left to launch her own company, Lynn Ngugi Network, under which she produces the Lynn Ngugi Show.
