If you asked me what my new year resolutions were, you will be blown away by the surprisingly amazing opportunities life throws at us. And with that I wish not to make resolutions anymore, I mean something’s just fall in place, from no where they become bigger than resolutions we had.
If you asked me then, whether I was going to write soon, my answer would have been be when I retire, when I probably have time to make mistakes on my own blog or platform where no one would read my articles. As a broadcast journalist, writing is something I liked and yet feared for the past years and something I didn’t think I was going to do very soon.
But moving into the future, it just happened like manna falling from heaven, I mean, I can now clearly say it was the right time, giving a shot at akoma, all I thought was that I was only going to send videos, something I’m completely well versed with. Little did I know I could actually write stories of up to 500 words.
Looking back on the months gone by, As a new year starts and an old one ends, the stories I have told, the interviews I have conducted and the classes I have attended, lets toast to akoma.
*a toast to akoma, for surprising me. I didn’t even know the platform at the beginning of the year;
*a toast to akoma for unveiling my other ability; the ability to think and tell stories in writing, and reach bigger audience;
*but a big toast to akoma for giving me the opportunity to learn, unlearn, make loads of mistakes but lots of lessons; maybe this is also one of those other mistakes. Haha!
To the new year, I want to raise a glass to more stories with mistakes, more lessons but also more opportunities to tell better stories in a different way.
Speaking of a different way, telling one of my end of year stories, I visited the biggest chili farm in Rwanda but the story of chili put aside, the workers on the farm are disabled; one blind and one without arms.
A toast to all the abled disabled in the New Year.
