Kreativ Blogger Awards


My new year has started off in the best way imaginable for any blogger.I have been privileged and honored yet again with another award. I must admit, my happiness index is at its super best.When I started blogging, I envisioned making as many people happy as possible.As it turns out, blessed are those who give for they shall receive.I have been overwhelmed with some quality blogging love and dedication of bloggers on my page. I can not love you all enough but commit to the pursuit of other people’s happiness.Most important is to change my writing to actions this year.At this point,let me pay greatest respect and gratitude to Lauren http://lscotthoughts.com/  Lauren to me is one of the most exceptional inspirational poets with great insights on life.Her works reflects the distinguished art of  writing from the heart.Enjoy her life changing poetic writings and short stories by visiting her blogs for inspiration.

If I had not started blogging, I would not have realized my writing talent nor would I ever realize my writing can be appreciated from different continents.This has been possible because of you bloggers.The lesson to every one is “never fail to try but try and fail” Ask yourself if there s a talent you are sitting on and subject it to public test.It could be a jack pot.This joy and happiness is as good as a jack pot to me.Now I am confident I can have a career in writing.Now I can inspire and motivate from the confines of my room.Now I have an Identity, I belong to a wonderful community  of online bloggers who are committed to my happiness in the same way I am dedicated to their happiness.

The rules of this award is that I share ten things about myself. I have previously shared things about myself but because there is more to say about my self than ten things, I will open up more about myself with the hope that it helps you know me better.

  1. I attended a missionary catholic school in Africa where it was against school rules to speak my native language.I would be flogged the number of words I spoke so as never to speak my local language but English and I thought it was normal.
  2. Growing up and studying in conflict in Uganda(Africa), we had to sleep in our schools’ roof ceiling for eighteen months to avoid abduction and conscription to a rug tug rebel movement that trains kids how to kill.Over 20,000 were abducted
  3. The first time I thought I fell in love was with a girl in early high school who spoke English like the “white man” himself. I fell in love with her English because it was a sign of civility and exposure. I guess it was a fantasy and not true love.
  4. The experience of loosing my Dad at 16 yrs was the strongest experience; I learnt to fend for myself in life and develop a thick skin of resilience to hard times and a positive attitude in life. I kept smiling and happy thereafter till to-date.
  5. As a child growing up in Africa, our best game was hunting wild birds and doing the roast to eat. It taught me social skills and character formation to be a people person.I guess I can get along with any one if I have a reason to relate with them.
  6. Another interesting thing about me is I never physically saw a plane that had landed untill I was 30 yrs old on my first flight to America,yet we would run for miles to see military helicopters land at a nearby airfield.Awesome experience
  7. I never learnt how to use a computer till I was 27 years old.I finished my first degree without ever pressing any letter on the key board.Now you can tell we live in different worlds and that’s just six years ago. I came a long way ahahahah lol
  8. The first time I visited Uganda’s only city was to speak as a student leader and the first time to ever get in a plane 5 yrs ago and visit America was to speak for my organization.Now you know why I am glad I learnt to write as a blogger.
  9. Last but not least, I won a full scholarship from the Joan B. kroc School of Peace Studies in San Diego, California for my Masters in Peace and Justice Studies. 
  10. Finally, I am a husband and father to two very handsome boys. Aliker Jermy Miguel(4yrs) and Aliker  Jason Bailey(1yr). Unfortunately, because of my scholarship, I have only had a week to see and relate with my last born Bailey.    

    My Joy
