I am a young entrepreneur, having been born and brought up in town by my lovely parents. I was taken to school just like any other child and i was much responsible.
I am a fist born of three and my parents are civil servants. I used to go to school and help my patents with domestic activities like cooking, washing house and cleaning the compound for my busy parents. Throughout my young age i have maintained a dignity of self reliance and handwork. When i completed my secondary school, my parents took me to a technical institute to pursue a technical course in computer engineering and maintenance.
My effort to secure a job in a private or a government institution proves futile and I opted to start my own business of computer repair, maintenance and networking. My parents had already supported me before to acquire a computer and a few tools needed to offer such services. As a well conversant person with my profession, I new all what I am required to have. My parents could only give me little money to acquire those tools. I decided to start with little equipment and I have been able to get much contracts from private companies and offices where I am called to offer computer maintenance and repair services. This is how I came to start my own business.
What is unique about the land i live is that community embraces one another through help in time of needs and emergency. My children would like to be educated and be entrepreneurs of tomorrow. My unique hobby is helping the poor people and destitute in the community and watching football.
