MTV VJ Holly will be hitting the books as she resumes her studies in the United States this coming new year and will be signing off as an MTV VJ. She made this announcement on this week’s episode of The MTV Show which she hosts with VJ Rich.
When asked about her experience as an MTV VJ, she said, “I have had the best two years of my life. Working at MTV has been an awesome adventure. Never would I have thought I would be able to face a crowd of 15,000 and survive! I’ve met the coolest people but most importantly I’ve grown so much as a person. I feel much more confident and the challenges I have faced at MTV like public speaking have made me so much more sure of myself as a person!”.
VJ Holly was discovered when MTV trawled the blogosphere in 2010 in an extensive search for its next VJ. Besting a huge pool of aspirants in challenges and fan votes, she was hailed the new VJ in front of over 15,000 screaming fans during World Stage Live In Malaysia 2010.
Since then, the part Polish, part Sinhalese-Chinese VJ has hosted MTV events across Asia gaining celebrity status gracing the covers of magazines in the region and has been featured in countless articles on print and online. VJ Holly also contributed stories to The New Paper in Singapore and The Star in Malaysia as a guest columnist.
“We’re happy that VJ Holly has chosen to pursue a college education. Putting school as a priority is a good thing. She’s been truly a great find and provided freshness and vibrancy to MTV. We wish her well,” says Tan Sian Ju (Vice President of MTV Brand, Asia).
Fans and viewers can still catch VJ Holly on-air until 20th October 2012 at the season finale of The MTV Show. For more information, visit The MTV Show’s website.
