Hi, I’m Sarah Hassan. I am an award-winning African actress and TV presenter. I loved acting from a small age and started professionally acting after high school. I feel blessed to have held major roles in over seven TV series, five of which aired on Pay TV across multiple African countries. I have been in six films, one of which was a British film that premiered on Channel 4 in the UK. I’ve hosted six TV shows, two of which were aired in over six African countries, two countrywide commercials and MC’D live events for different notable brands in the African Market.
My first TV series, “Tahidi high” saw me scoop the Best Actress Award twice in a row at the CHAT Awards (2010 and 2011) in Kenya. Later, I won the Best Actress Award 2014 thanks to my role in the short film ‘Now That You’re here’, which was part of the 48 Hour Film Project. In October, the next year, my co-host and I, won the Best TV Hosts Award 2015 at the prestigious Kalasha Awards in Kenya for Discovery +254, an entertainment magazine talk show close to my heart that focused on inspiring young people to stay in school, develop their talents and reach their full potential. Not long after that, In December, I won the coveted East African Journalist of The Year Award 2015 in Tanzania for my work on Mashariki Mix and Maisha Max, two amazing lifestyle shows that showcased the beauty of East Africa to the world.
In January 2016, I moved to Los Angeles to attend New York Film Academy. I wanted to learn and understand more about the craft I love doing, as well as grow as an actress and a human being. Leaving my home and comfort zone was hard but I believe just as Brian Tracy said “Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”
Aside from that, I am a geek at heart and I hold a bachelor’s degree in Actuarial Science.
