Good for you, is it an online course?
No, I travel to the UK often for one week taught classes, which I have just finished.
Isn’t it hectic, the constant travel to school?
Sometimes it is but I don’t mind because I also get to shop.
So you like shopping?
(Laughing....) I love shopping. I plan to shopping whenever I travel.
What do you buy and where?
I can spend the whole day in the mall shopping for myself and the family. But when it comes to my kids, I am focused, I go straight to Next.
And in Nairobi?
I spend a lot of time at Village Market, its near home.
