About Me

Am Samwel ochieng otieno, a resident from Alego Usonga, Siaya County.. A Bachelor of Agriculture graduate from Egerton University Nakuru. I am Second last born in a family of seven. My father was a farm assistant manager at Dominion Farms in Siaya.It this Agriculture that has made it easier for all our siblings to be graduates in different fields of profession.
Transparency and honesty are the key award for economic growth.
I strongly believe in social change philosophy through community organizing, social activism and political advocacy to balance the economic disparity.
I support civil and Human rights, peace and nonviolence,anti-poverty strategies, environmental justice, challenges to international trade and privatization, education and healthcare access.
I believe that no matter the race, colour, religion,ethnicity, background history, everyone deserves a better gauge in the meter of humanity.I advocate for sing to the loudest the "concept of Ubuntu".
In future time limit lies within my started struggle, I hope to hear someone mention my name and identity for support I am striving to give.
Having been raised from humble background, I I make a stop each day to tell the world those who supported me when my stars were dimming...A day support, one hand touch regained my hope with the world that somebody great could you greater and when the journey is destinied together ,we end with greatest emblem on our faces. Together for and as one.
I do love and get driven by a popular magazine, Men's Health.There is an article that cited an experiment that was conducted by Harvard psychologist.In the experiment, a group of 16 elderly men were recruited to live in a monastery for a week. Half of them were instructed to reminisce about the year 1959, a year of their youth; while the other half actually lived like it was 1959.They watched the same Tv shows, listened to same music, talked about that era's world events; and doing all this like it actually was in the present and not many decades in the past.
At the end of the week, those who lived like it was 1959 scored better on a number of tests, and we're rated by observers as actually looking younger than their counterparts who only reminisced about the same year.
The conclusion of this experiment therefore was, IF YOU THINK AND ACT AS THOUGH YOU ARE HEALTHY,THEN YOU WILL ACTUALLY BECOME HEALTHY ;If you think and act like you good at something, you will become just that.
Given chance... Sooner I will start my journey start my studies in Microbiology in eager support study to global agenda programmes on Anti-microbial resistance research particularly in developing countries.
Later on still medicine, I hopefully gear my studies for Medical Physics on global campaign cancer treatment methods.
