5-Minute-Interview: I’m mistaken as a Maasai for my facial structure

I’m good at……following instructions. I am very keen on details and a great timekeeper.

I’m very bad at…… lying and pretending.

The last book I enjoyed was…….The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is…a friend tried to take advantage of me but I escaped, luckily.

A common misconception of me is…….I am a Maasai. My face and dental structure give that impression.

One of my worst childhood fears was……….going to the washroom at night.

My ideal night out…going out with my boyfriend for dancing and sometimes having fun with my girls.

In another life I’d have been………a musician.

If I was a politician, I would……use my position to be a transformational leader.

The best age to be is…20s.

The best part of my job is……ensuring everything is in order. I enjoy playing with numbers and helping the company make decisions that will minimise cost and increase revenue.

My greatest regret is……putting so much effort into someone else's project, which was not worth my sacrifice and hard work.

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

My greatest achievement is…….my career, being a finance analyst is not that easy.

My favourite writer……….Ngugi wa Thiong'o.

My lowest point of misery was………when I lost my first job. Reporting to work as usual and suddenly being told 'your services no longer needed' distressed me and I suffered a lot.

My greatest possession is…my family, friends and most of all God.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be………..Hey, Mercy, you are a strong woman, you are not dying any time soon.
