I’m good at…………..mathematics, leading a team and achieving a set target.

I’m very bad at……being patient.

The last book I enjoyed reading is…Beyond Limits by Pepe Minambo.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is…I was robbed by a friend.

In another life I’d have been…an astronaut, heading Nasa. I would be taller too.

If I was a politician, I would…ensure corrupt officials do not go unpunished. Years in prison without bail would serve them right.

The best age to be is…25. At this age, one is past all the nightlife and is getting serious with life.

The best part of my job is….extracting natural resources. They literally make everything we use.

My greatest regret is…not working smart enough in high school.
