5-Minute-Interview: I'm not rude, my big pretty eyes just roll naturally

I’m good at………nursing patients back to health and organising.

I’m very bad at……holding back laughter. If something is funny, I burst out laughing. Some people find it rude.

The last book I enjoyed reading is……Flawless by Sara Shepard.

The most surprising things that happened to me are…..…I got my lifelong partner through a blind date and I got an opportunity to buy land through lottery winnings.

A common misconception of me is…I am rude. It's because of my eyes – they are big and beautiful but they roll when transiting from one person to another.

One of my worst childhood fears was………the bogeyman. I watched cartoons that made me believe there were monsters under my bed.

My ideal night out ia……at my place with my friends having drinks and snacks while watching stand-up comedy.

In another life I’d have been…a chef. There's a lot I can do in the kitchen that makes everybody happy.

If I was a politician, I would……….make sure I keep my promises. Kenyans always believe their leaders will fulfil their obligations but they get disappointed.

The best age to be is…my current age. There's a new experience in every age.

The best part of my job is… nursing patients back to health. The joy in the families that go through my hands makes life worthwhile.

My greatest regret...i have no regrets.

Historical figures I most identify with………..Mother Teresa and Clara Barton – founder of the American Red cross.

Living people I most admire..…US 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton and Queen Elizabeth.

My greatest achievement is……going through nursing school. There were a lot of challenges.

My favourite writer is…….…William Shakespeare

My greatest possessions are………my nursing skills and my joyful nature. I smile all the time.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be……. I have run the race.
