It was the one the biggest mentions on Ugandan Girl’s blog. There was so much hype around it. Her 60 seconds interview mentioned my name and I got approached by all these news wires looking to interview me. I mean who would think Sanyu FM’s Seanice, Capital FM’s Kassuja, NTV’s Rosemary and Tina (Rendezvous), UBC’s Lulu, WBS’s ummmmmm don’t remember her name would be interested in my interview. And by the way Isha Shassey of CNN came with her colleague Collin McEdawards looking for that interview. The 10 questions for 60 seconds.
Heart thumps fast, couldn’t feel my pulse as they placed all these microphones on me and make up so I could look too good.
1. What did you want to be when you were growing up?
That’s a good question. You know as you grow up its like evolution is working its way. Something like reality kicks in and grabs that, that you wanted to be and gives it to somebody else. At first I wanted to be a driver, then I kept on growing up and that changed to me desiring to be a doctor. Ofcourse thats where reality kicked in with Chemistry and Biology plus physics. I also had a stint at wanting to become a Geologist.
2. What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
Hmmmm. Interesting question. Something like “don’t start what you cannot finish.” But I doubt its the best piece of advice I have been given.
3. What’s the best piece of advice you ever gave?
I give advice to people everyday. I can’t exactly remember which one was the best. But there is one that I think I offered.
“You too young to commit yourself to this non-paying job”
4. What do you most enjoy about your job?
I am yet to start working after resigning at my old work place. (Long story)
5. Who would you most like to have dinner with?
Uhhhhh. Any beautiful lady who can have descent conversation with me. Maybe also with Dan Brown, Simon Baker, Cote De Pablo, Micheal Whiteley, Aristotle (RIP), Thomas Hobbs (RIP), Ousmane Sembane( RIP)… The list is endless
6. What has been your most embarrassing moment?
I have had many of those too. But the most embarrassing was ummm let me see. I kept a lady waiting for an hour and on that day I was supposed to meet her sister. No follow up question on this please.
7. Who is the most important person in your life?
All people who play a role in my life are important. I can’t exactly find one who is more important because everyone in my life plays a different role.
8. What’s your worst regret in life?
I wish I could tell you that I can only answer that off-the-record but I cant. But here is what I think. For everything that happens in my life I get to understand the world around me better.
9. Who is your role model?
Professional – Richard Quest. I have many Role models.
10. If you could be one person for a day, who would that be?
Anyone who reads this blog has been tagged to this post and can do the 60seconds. Unfortunately this is more than 60 seconds for me….
