I have mentors and a close circle of friends to whom I am committed to being accountable. We will talk about everything candidly. One of my mentors, Mama Adah Adoyo, told me that I need to break certain patterns in my family. I want to do this.
I want my children, if I ever have them, and my nephews and nieces to know that they are able to stand because I stood. These boundaries have helped me. I don’t think a decent man should just up and say ‘let’s go have sex’ to a woman who is not his wife. I think it is a process. I have made these decisions not because being intimate with a man does not feel good, but because I did not want to make a habit of asking for forgiveness for sins I could prevent.
This discipline has enabled me to grow in my chosen field of marketing. I graduated with both a Bachelors and a Master’s Degree in Marketing from the University of Nairobi, and I am a member of the Chartered Instituted of Marketing.
I work with the East African Portland Cement Company as a commercial services manager and I attend Christ is the Answer Ministries on Valley Road where I mentor young people through my involvement with the Fellowship of Christian Unions – FOCUS. There are many looking up to me, and lowering my standards and letting them down just isn’t an option.
One of my lowest points was when I was diagnosed with fibroids. I cried out to God and asked Him very many questions. I remember a nurse attempting to do a Pap smear test but I involuntarily shut down and she was not able to get through.
