Five minutes – Shadrine Rono: My friends can’t and will never define who I am

I’m good at.........poetry and singing

 

I’m very bad at........politics.

 

The last book I enjoyed reading was......Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.

 

The most surprising thing that happened to me was.....failing my KCSE exam.

 

A common misconception of me is.......I am a bad boy because of the company I keep. My friends cannot and will never define who I am.

 

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

My ideal night out is................good music while dancing around a bonfire till morning with friends.

 

In another life I would have been.........a doctor.

 

If I was a politician, I would.......raise people’s living standards and not mine alone.

 

The best age to be is.........18.

 

The best part of my job is..............interacting with new people and travelling to new places.

 

In moments of weakness..........I listen to music or sleep.

 

My greatest regret is..............back in high school I did not let a girl I had fallen in love with know how I felt about her, I watched love go.

 

The greatest part of my job is...............making my clients happy and satisfied.

 

Living person I most admire........Leonardo DiCaprio.

 

My favourite writer is.......Chinua Achebe.

 

My greatest possession is....a purse given to me by my late mother about 10 years ago. I always have it tucked somewhere wherever I go.

 

My life mantra is..............in life people are like a crayons, they might not be your colour of choice but one day you will need them to complete your picture.

 

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be...............I have lived to my level best. God, be with my soul.
