I’m good at..............photography and listening.

I’m very bad at.................lying. I always opt to tell the truth every time.

The last book I enjoyed reading is...................VisionMongers: Making a Life and a Living in Photography by David duChemin.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is.......................three of my best friends – Issa, Mandela and Karenga – once took me to Mombasa to celebrate my birthday.

A common misconception of me is...............I love eating, because of the size of my body. This is my natural size and I thank God for it.

One of my worst childhood fears was.........pests such as cockroaches.

My ideal night out is..............dinner with my family followed by a movie.

In moments of weakness I..........kneel before God and ask for guidance.

In another life I’d have been........a footballer.

If I was a politician, I would................ensure the youth get funds to start investing early enough.

The best age to be is...............18. This is where life started for me.

The best part of my job is.......................I do what I love. I meet many people in my course of work and make new friends.

Living leaders I most admire............. President Uhuru Kenyatta. His desire for change and development of our country really inspires me.

My greatest achievement is................getting my degree and working for Kass newspaper.

My greatest regret is......................none.

My greatest possession is................my family. It is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be................Lord, accept my spirit and thank You for all that I have accomplished.
