We are profoundly grateful for their commitment to empowering communities through media,” she expresses with heartfelt gratitude.
Yet, Hilda’s aspirations transcend survival. She seeks aid from individuals within and beyond the media landscape to elevate Ghetto FM to new heights. “We cannot achieve our objectives in isolation. I call upon all advocates of community media to unite with us in our journey towards greater impact and influence,” she passionately urges.
However, Ghetto FM faces multifaceted challenges financial constraints, technical obstacles, and resource limitations often hinder its growth. Yet, undeterred, Hilda leads her team with unwavering determination. “Each challenge presents an opportunity for innovation and triumph. We refuse to be defined by limitations but by resilience and tenacity,” she affirms.

Through her perseverance and dedication, she navigates the intricacies of single motherhood and health battles while propelling Ghetto Radio to greater heights, inspiring countless others. As she aptly concludes, “Though we encounter hardships, we possess the power to transform them into triumphs. Together, we can achieve anything.”
