Dear Akinyi wa Tuju, now selling chapati and mandazi.
I am proud of you mama. Keep going, eat your own sweat. Let no one shame you for working hard to pick yourself up. We all make mistakes and we all fall down.
The higher we are the greater the fall will be when it comes but again, the greater the fall the higher the bounce back potential (basic physics). Work, work, work.
Let those who want to talk about you keep doing it. They will never steal your experience and exposure. They will never snatch the learning in your head and your heart.
You are a better person today. Nyar luo we are great cooks, make the best chapati mandazi and nyoyo and serve them with joy.
Never be shamed because you choose to redo your life even if it is from scratch.
Mama Mona na Nelly.
