Diving Deeper

How long have you worked in the tourism industry? Have you had other jobs before? 

Before engaging in the tourism business, I did work in Tanzanite Mines as a miner and later selling tanzanite gems. I was among the entrepreneurs who used to buy the small pieces of gems from the local miners and sell to the dealers.
I have also been practicing a small scale agriculture, growing corn, beans etc. But in the future, I’m thinking of trying large scale agriculture and growing the crops to be exported–that way, I will create jobs for the local community!

Tell us a little bit about your friends and family. What do they do? Where do they live? Describe their personalities.

I’m from a Maasai tribe–a famous tribe with a polygamic culture. My family is so big because my father was married with two wives.
Before counting the ones who passed away, we were 16 in total…11 boys and 5 girls! What a beautiful, big family.
Some of my family members are farmers and small business owners.We all live in Tanzania in the Arusha region.
