About Me

My father and grand father both were fishermen, my elder brother also is a good fisher man. I studied and went to University ; South Eastern Kenya University and studied Bachelor of Education Science.though had interest in Aquaculture.
Am in my last year of studies in the Easterner part of my country.

Prayers and reading of novels has helped me to overcome my challenges, I use books as my alcohol to blow my mind of daily stress plus lots of hope.

I had realized the the demand for fish was getting high will the supply was reducing ,so i started rearing tillapia and nile perch to cope up with the demand and also assist me financially.<input name="aboutMeTimestamp" type="hidden"><input name="aboutMeTimestamp" type="hidden"><input name="aboutMeTimestamp" type="hidden">
