I'm good at……….solving problems.

I'm very bad at………begging. I find it self-disrespectful.

The last book I enjoyed reading is……..Five Minute Millionaire: Life is Nothing but Experience of Emotions in a Moment of Time by Dabeer Mallik.

The most surprising that happened to me is…………..knowing God's love for me.

A common misconception of me is........I can do anything that any man does. I only work hard confidently knowing that I can succeed in anything I set out for. But I have weaknesses just as any human being and have failed in some attempts.

One of my worst childhood fears was……………..my education life. I was scared of failing in school as that would mean the end for me.

My ideal night out is............budget-less out with my family. I find it adventurous to spend promptly but without stretching my pockets beyond limits.

In another life I would be…………an investigator.

If I was a politician, I would……….become the people's servant.

The best age to be is.......25-45. This is the time to discover oneself, when you have energy to explore, set goals and achieve them.

The best part of my job is........financial modelling and tax.

My greatest regret is............not achieving my preferred grade in school. I wanted to attain good grades to gain direct university entry.

Historical figure I most identify with is…………….Martin Luther King Jr.

Living person I admire most.......Richard Branson.

My greatest achievement is…………….getting through my education to the university despite financial challenges.

My favourite author is......…Pepe Minambo.

My lowest point of misery was.........failing an important interview. I had high expectations and it almost shattered my confidence.

My greatest possession is…...a happy family.

If I was to die in five minutes last words would be.......I love my family.
