Five-minutes-interview :I'd try not to be the Moses Kuria of my generation


I’m good at.....being me. Easy.

I’m very bad at....introducing myself to strangers.

The last book I enjoyed reading is.....The Brand Within: The Power of Branding from Birth to the Boardroom by Daymond John.

A common misconception of me is...I am too serious, a snob and full of myself. The fact is, I am a very easy and down-to-earth guy.

One of my worst childhood fears was....strangers.

My ideal night out is....chilling with friends and listening to some good music.

The most surprising thing that happened to me surprises me every day.

In moments of weakness I.....visit a chapel and have some moment with our Creator and then seek counsel from my mentor.

In another life I’d have been....a media personality.

If I was a politician, I would...try to never promise anything, because it’s hard for any politician to keep promises. I would also try my best not to be the Moses Kuria of my generation.

The best age to be is.....23. This is when you get your priorities straight.

The best part of my job is.....I get to work without feeling like I am working and I can work from anywhere as long as I have my iPad and internet connection.

Living leader I most admire.....President Uhuru Kenyatta. His PR is on point.

My greatest achievement is....being the man I am today. But getting to where I am today is an achievement by itself.

My greatest regret is...I keep learning every day. Every downfall is a lesson, nothing to regret.

My greatest possession family. I lost my father when I was only 10, so all I have is my mother and my two sisters.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be... I wish I could know who cries at my burial.
