The first thing you do in the morning
I get to the gym in my house for physical fitness
When are you happiest
Basically when I am in a new environment like this time when I am in Rwanda for the first time
Affectionate memory of your parents
When I was travelling with my father in his old pick up, it broke down but I realized my father was more concerned about my life.
What keeps you awake at night?
When students are being disturbed by effects which are beyond my control, like one incident when a student was accidentally shot by the police.
The most important thing life has taught you
To be a humble man and realizing the need for other people in becoming successful
Being the youngest Kenyan to start a successful university
During your free time
I socialize with my friends and enjoy reading
I plan to start a foundation that contributes to the needy
