5-Minute-Interview: A friend cried when I refused to be his girlfriend

I’m good at……….dancing and cooking.

I’m very bad at……pretending. 

The last book I enjoyed reading is…….The Winner Stands Alone by Paulo Coelho.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is………well, I attended a wedding after-party where a friend broke down into tears because I refused to be his girlfriend.

A common misconception of me is…….I’m too serious. I plan a lot for the future unlike most university students.

One of my worst childhood fears was……….getting scars on knees. Sadly, I have a couple.

My ideal night out is………with my best friend trading ideas on how to get rich by 40.

In another life I’d have been……….a lawyer. I happen to only watch legal drama series.

If I was a politician, I would……..make every effort to curb corruption in the country as hard as it sounds.

The best age to be……..20 to 28. I guess that’s where self-actualisation is at its best.

The best part of my job is……..reading from all works of life.

My greatest regret is………my antisocial behaviour in crowds may have deprived me of opportunities.

Historical figure I most identify with……….American rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.

Living person I most admire……Supreme Court judge Njoki Ndung'u.

My greatest achievement is…….completing my degree. 

My favourite writer is……….Paulo Coelho.

My lowest point of misery is………when I fail to achieve what I set out to.

My greatest possession is……..land. I am so proud of that.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be………..Thank You, Lord, for the life I have lived. I believe I have made someone in society better. I give You all the glory and praise.
