Recently I have worked with Vanessa Mdee as her photographer, EFM radio as photographer, worked with VCCT to mention but a few… the list is endless.
Any kind words for the youth out there?
Its a competitive world we live in, many youth are seated waiting for jobs, we ought to stand up and fight, be creative and get out of our comfortable zones. EAT THE FROG EVERY MORNING!
Many are possibly wondering what the phrase Eat the frog means!
Hahaha! Its a book by Mark Twain. The basic idea is that if you do the worst thing on your plate first in the morning, the rest of the day is a cake walk. What any other worse thing could possibly happen after eating a live frog every morning ?
You had me right there! Folks, catch Steven on Instagram @stevengenya.
Thanks for your time, Steven. Keep up the hard work.
