How does your weekend start?
I don’t always have weekends because my job is very demanding. Sometimes I work during the weekends but when I don’t work, I relax at home or visit friends and family members.
Do you go to club?
Yes, I go to club once in a while when I have the time.
I have never had any problem with peer pressure. I am very courageous and always happy with myself. I believe those influenced by peer pressure are people who are not confident in themselves.
When I am not spending time with my friends, I am always with one family member or the other, because I love my family a lot. I also like to go shopping on Saturdays and perhaps attend weddings or birthday ceremonies when there is the need to.
I enjoy reading novels, listening to music, shopping and making reasonable friends.
I am not really into sports, but I like basketball and lawn tennis. I wish to be a star player.
There is no specific chore for me, but the house must be clean when I am home because that is how my mum trained me. I have always grown to know that health is wealth.
I would say I am an eclectic when it comes to music. I like listening to songs with cool beats and realistic lyrics. My favourite artist is Don Moen.
My mum is my role model, because she is a very determined and hardworking woman. She thought me how to be independent and an achiever.
So far, I have graduated from the university with good grades. After my service year I worked for about a year but I quit and went ahead for my Masters. I am through with my Masters now and I work with an online media. I still hope to go further with my education so as to reach a great height in the society. I want to help the less privileged and would also love to be known as a philanthropist.
What do you wish you could do more of on weekends?
I wish I could rest more during the weekends. The hustle and bustle of city life can make life tiring sometimes.
