It’s me , Bandara Mudiyanselage Asela Bandaranayake. I was born in Mawilmada, Kandy & Studied at Vidyartha College.
In the first era of my life I never thought of being an Announcer. It wasn’t my dream. In my school days I was good at singing and won many awards. But somehow with the force of my parents I studied Maths stream for my A/L’s. In this period I had my Aim. I decided to change and sacrifice everything to achieve it. I must point out that my teachers are the once who backed me up to go there.
My goal was to obtain a degree in mass communication & become a professional Announcer. For that I changed my A/L stream to Arts. With one sitting I was able to enter the University of Kelaniya. From there I obtained my Special Degree in Mass Communication. University life was the evolving era of my second life. At there as the president of art Society I was able to give the leadership and start to “Bihi dora Abiyasa” Art ceremony which is continuously happening until today. I was the Announcer also.
After finishing the Degree I was called for an selection test @ Jathika Rupavahini .They were looking for new announcers to conduct the “Nugasevana” Program. I was selected. Still I’m working on that program while practicing as a Professional Announcer.
