MTV VJ Holly is calling it quits. She will be hitting the books as she resumes her studies in the United States next year. She made this announcement on this week’s episode of The MTV Show (which she hosts with VJ Rich).
“I have had the best two years of my life. Working at MTV has been an awesome adventure. I never 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,” says VJ Holly in a Press release.
VJ Holly was discovered when MTV trawled the blogosphere in 2010 in an extensive search for its next VJ. Beating a huge pool of aspirants in challenges and fan votes, she was hailed the new VJ in front of over 15,000 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.
“We’re happy that VJ Holly has chosen to pursue a college education. Putting school as a priority is a good thing. She’s truly been a great find and provided freshness and vibrancy to MTV. We wish her well,” says MTV Brand, Asia vice-president Tan Sian Ju.
You can still catch VJ Holly on air until Oct 20 at the season finale of The MTV Show.
The MTV Show premieres every Saturday at 2pm with repeats every Saturday (1am and 10pm), Monday (9pm and 12.30am), Wednesday (midnight) and Thursday (noon).
