Life in the slums of Nairobi taught me how to survive by seizing the rarest opportunity that reared its graceful head at me. It is through this predominantly quest for survival that I discovered that I've a knack for words. I started writing, first to impress myself and those around me. Then I learnt that I could make a living from the words I craft. It is at this juncture that I got wild. I wrote like it was the last fullstop I'd ever grace a sentence with. I write like tomorrow may never come.

It therefore came as no-surprise to me when after clearing my O-levels, and doing considerably well, I received a letter of admission from one of the public universities in the country to pursue a degree in mass communication and journalism. I cleared my undergraduate studies late last year. And found that employment is not as easy to get as I thought. I fell back to what I love doing best. And here I am, writing like my life depended on it. Read and share my content. And help me put one foot ahead of the other on my way out of Kibera.
