About Me

Hi, I am Justus Auka, a young hardworking gentleman who has continued to excel in his education. As a pupil in my lower levels, my efforts in classwork were recognized when i was given a chance to sit for my first national examinations while in class seven (that is one year below the normal examination entry) instead of class eight. It is was not a surprise that i emerged the top student in the school and proceed to the high school level having spend seven years in lower primary instead of eight years. After high school i proceeded to high school and later to university where i am undertaking my last semester in a bachelor of commerce ( accounting) profession.

My Business

I am a professional writer ( dealing with articles and essays but i am also learning on transcription). I also do farming at home whereby i grow sugarcane for commercial purposes. I started professional writing in 2013 and and achieved a lot from it; both academically and financially. It is the writing profession that pays my bills and boosts my living standards. I look forward towards another freelance avenue whereby i will be exchanging dollars for my local currency (Kenyan shilling)- We call it pay-pal to mpesa business. I also want to expand my retail shop business.
