Julius Mbaluto, 50, Kenya

“Friends and family are my oxygen. I really can’t live without them."

"I’ve always been a really outgoing person. I just love the company of others: friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances. They make life worth living. So being founder and editor of the Informer East Africa was the perfect job for me. It got me involved with more and more people and I really felt part of a wider community.

I felt part of an even bigger community when I worked for KBC TV. And the wonderful people I worked with there became like family to me.

So it was so hard to leave all my friends and family when I moved to the UK to study. But they’re all always in my thoughts. And I do all I can to stay in touch with them.”
