I can’t believe many years ago when I was frustrated with life, I blocked one of my former High School classmates on Facebook for buying an S500. He is an executive chef for a rich family in Dubai.

Anyway, we just reconnected and I am not jealous of his success anymore. Growth.
He was one of the more than 30 guys who didn’t get the grades to go beyond High School. He went to a Catering School while I joined Moi University. From then he relocated to Dubai. When he bought the Merc S500 I was earning KES 15K a month living in an SQ. Life is never fair.
I am glad we have reconnected and now I have someone to host me and the family next time we are in Dubai. Oh, he sold the Mercedese S500. Nowadays he has a Mercedes E350 and a Lamborghini. Lanes!
Jealousy is a bad thing and I am glad I am not in that place where I am jealous of other people’s successes. They give me motivation to work harder. No human is limited.
This sort of experience is why I understand why there are so many people who wake up and are just angry at other people for no reason. Worse still, people they have never met. I hope they grow as I have. Soon.

Internship. There are better opportunities of Internship from local organisations than International organisations. In fact, many international organisations don't even pay interns.
