5-Minute-Interview: For a tomboy, I’ve raised quite the gentleman

I’m good at……….photography. I love capturing beautiful moments.

I’m very bad at……singing. 

The last book I enjoyed reading is………Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is…….…quiting my job to follow my dream to be a photographer. I wasn't that daring before.

A common misconception of me is……….I don't get angry. I actually do, I just don't show it much.

One of my worst childhood fears was…failing, especially exams. The thought of my dad asking for results made me tremble.

My ideal night out is………with someone special at a restaurant having a nice meal with good wine.

In another life I’d have been……….me. I guess I have figured everything I need to figure out about myself. The process is scary so I'd come back as myself in another life.  

If I was a politician, I would…change the game of Kenyan politics. I especially hate when they take politics to a funeral or wedding.

The best age to be is…18. It was exciting. I had nothing else to think about apart from having fun.

The best part of my job is……..when I make good profits. It's fulfilling.

My greatest regret is………not scoring straight As in school.

Historical figure I most identify with…Nobel laureate Prof Wangari Maathai.

Living person I most admire…………media personality Caroline Mutoko.

My greatest achievement is……..…being a mother. I was a bit of a tomboy, taking care of myself sometimes was hard. I have, however, raised a gentleman.

My favourite writer is…Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I love her romance novels.

My greatest possession is………..my son. He is my strength. When I feel like I will give up in business, I think about the life I want to give him and I push myself to succeed.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be…Lord, take care of my son.
