I'm good at…………..singing. 

I'm very bad at…......holding grudges and remembering. 

The last book I enjoyed reading is.......Anthills of the Savannah by Chinua Achebe. 

The most surprising thing that happened to me is…......my mum bought me a laptop shortly after I finished high school. 

A common misconception of me is...................I am very polite. 

One of my worst childhood fears was……..........turkeys. I was attacked by a male turkey as a child. My father later killed it but I detest them. 

My ideal night out is…........with my girlfriends at a good restaurant with plenty of good food and drinks. 

In another life I’d have been...........a business administrator. I always dreamt of being CEO or director of a large business. 

If I was a politician, I would................ensure the people I represent are fully involved in governance. That’s rare here in Kenya. 

The best age to be is.........20s. 

The best part of my job is…............hiring new personnel for my company. It gives me pleasure to know that I just made a difference in someone’s life. 

My greatest regret is….......having my dad as my dad. I always wish that he were like all fathers out there, caring, loving but above all, present. 

Living person I most admire….............my Mum. She is my strength and does everything humanly possible to ensure my siblings and I are fine. She is my pillar and without her I wouldn’t have turned out this fine. 

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

My greatest possession is…........my Lexus car. It’s my baby. 

My idea of perfect happiness is……...a well-paying job and children, no more no less. 

Life Mantra...............In life if you leave things to chance, you have no chances and if you approach life casually, you will be a casualty.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be...…In your Kingdom, Almighty God, shall I dwell. Amen.
