Welcome to this new segment; ItsMyStory which gives me and you the opportunity to share our lifetime experiences, which may be sweet or bitter while we draw lessons from them.
Being a journalist, I have and I do communicate with lots of people from diverse life statutes. One thing I have always come to appreciate is the fact that every person, at any given time, always has that one experience which they wish to share yet they don’t get that courage or opportunity to do so.
Having deeply held talks with my senior editor, Elvis Simiyu, I can gladly assert that one of my interesting traits is coming to be of importance. I have grown up to experience lots of things, met with different kinds of people and listened to the sweetest and hurtful escapades people ever had, some of which they are going through.
Through this segment, I intend to provide a platform where each and every one of us can get that opportunity to give their experiences; what they were and how the moved on or towards them. It is my hope that through my childhood dream of becoming a journalist, I cannot only be able to inform people but also get that opportunity to inspire lives.
The Wisemen say experience is the best teacher. Thus, as we have all had experiences in the past, currently and even in future, it would be prudent to say we could be the best teachers to ourselves and even others!
It is my humble requested to you that we join hands for this promising initiative. I will be publishing experiences not only from myself but also from you as a reader.
The stories will be published every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday of the week, on this website.
