Rasoah, then + now
Rasoah, then + now

So, What do we call you?

My full name is Rasoah [Ra-soh-ah] Ang'ara Mwilitsa - the first two inherited from my grandmother :) - when I was younger I used to love tracks from Luhya land and hence earned the nickname 'Mukangala' while in college. I still get calls from my Collegemates whenever the song (Mukangala) is aired on TV!

Asilia Alias - Ras [Razz]

How long have you been working in the world of Asilia?

I have been working at Asilia since May 2011. That makes it 2 years + 1 month + 1 week

Tell me, if you were a Superhero who would you be  - and why?

Mother Teresa - Not to blow my own trumpet but I have been branded as this as I wouldn't want to see any of the people close to me suffer. I always try to assist where and when I can. I have found myself losing sleep at 3am simply because of thinking of a friend's problem. I don't condone people who look down on others and those who take advantage of others, no matter their status

And your favourite Colour?

I love blue - It's a symbol of confidence, intelligence, wisdom, faith, loyalty, truth and above all, it's a symbol of Heaven (the skies). I didn't know I was in love with blue till the day I realised that my wardrobe was dominated by it!

Who are your heroes?

My mum - for making me who I am today

My son - for strengthening me in my weakest moments and also because I see my personality reflected in him

What would I find in your refrigerator right now? 

Some rice and beef stew from yesternight's dinner. The rest of the stuff is just vegetables. The only junk I do is french fries and I seldom take them home

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see play the lead role as you?

Sandra Bullock - very down to earth, takes life very easy, both on and off the screen. See her acceptance speech when she won two Razzie awards.  My favourite movie - The Proposal. I am also a fan of Mexican movies - right now I am following one called "Abyss of Passion"

If I wrote a biography about you, what should I call it?

I can't really find a perfect title! Maybe just use my name because it's unique and I think that I am unique in my own way

What is your favourite sandwich?

To be honest, I don't have a favourite. I hate any sandwich that has anything raw in it (cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, name them). I hate cheese too. For this reason you will never find me buying burger! I do however make my own at home from bread and beef, greengrams, cooked veggies etc. Yum

The 3 words that describe you best are...

Simple - I would fit in in any kind of environment 

Passionate - I take everything that matters to me very seriously 

Perfectionist - This comes out when at my house. I do all my stuff in a particular order e.g: when hanging clothes on the line I use only one colour of pegs, all t-shirts together, blouses together, trousers etc. So, I do all my stuff by myself!

What are your plans for the weekend? 

Saturday - I've got a lunch date with my son

Sunday - attend mass, do laundry, cuddle in and continue watching a TV series I started last weekend
