FIVE MINUTES – Wilson Mwaura

 

I'm good at...................playing football.

I'm very bad at ...................dancing, it is hard mastering the moves and it makes me feel awkward.

The last book I enjoyed reading is..................The Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is.............losing my aunt. She was the only aunt and her death was a blow.

A common misconception of me is.............I am a foodie. I don’t love food, in fact I have a poor appetite.

One of my worst childhood fears was..........snakes. Just thinking of snake bites and the venom leaves me frozen.

My ideal night out is..............at a nice resort with my family and plenty of really good food.

In another life I’d have been...............an architect, I love drawing.

If I was a politician, I would..........ensure fairness, equality and justice to all.

The best age to be is...........between 20 and 30.That is when you need to have achieved some of your goals and even made a name for yourself and of course have a family.

The best part of my job is............helping my students intellectually and transforming them to be better people.

My greatest regret is...........................none. I always try my best in every situation.

Living person I most admire...............footballer Christiano Ronaldo.

In moments of weakness, I................sleep. It always drowns all my fears and worries.

My favourite writer is................Ngugi wa Thiong'o

My greatest possession is ..............my phone. Its multi-purpose, socially, educationally and also for music. I can’t do without it.

My idea of perfect happiness is.................a healthy life with a good family and plenty of hard-earned wealth.

My life mantra is......................life is too short to think of matching socks.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be.............God, please take care of my family.
