How does she feel at 50 we asked her a few days back?
I feel exceptionally great and fulfilled at 50.
What are the lessons life has taught her at 50?
The major lesson that life has taught me most, is for one to try as much as possible to be good to people, within your little limit.
You never know when the little seeds u sew or little kindness u show, will eventually save u from total destruction. You never know.
She has faced a lot of challenges in the last few years. What does she makes of it?
Indeed, I have been through so much. A whole lot has happened in my life.
How I was able to survive all the challenges is just God, coupled with my relationship with people around me.
The story of my life is more than a whole book. Especially my marital journey.
Many of the guests who attended her birthday had nice things to say about her. How do all these make her feel?
Well, I hear it every day from different people that I’m nice.
I think it’s just a natural thing.
Like my mum always tell me, sometimes when she looks at me, she shakes her head and tells me that right from my childhood, there's nothing she buys for me that I can't dash out to a friend. For me, I just do my own things.
I enjoy giving out, it’s my calling.
I don't have much, but as little as I can, I try to give.
At the same time, I don’t look down on anyone.
At my former place of work, my closest friends were the cleaners, drivers and the security guards.
Even in my community, my best pallies are the youth.
All I know is that I am blessed with exceptional human relationship management gifts.
