My name is Gordon Collins Ochieng, 31 years old Kenyan citizen, married and a father of four beautiful children. Mine is a long story, one of struggle, perseverance, depression and almost giving up on life.
I completed my college education with a diploma in information technology and couldn't proceed with my degree because of constant financial constraints, I got employed as a stores clerk by a liquor distributor in 2012 before getting a more promising role as an IT administrator offering user support. The engagement ended around 2015 September when a fruit processing firm offered me a job as the companies COO, The company later closed shop in 2016 due to unfavorable work environment (investors from Japan didn't get government work permit), leaving us out to dry with nothing. I have tried to source for employment ever since with no avail. I have been surviving on offering basic IT support to friends and organisations, I have also volunteered for several humanitarian organisations based in Machakos and Nakuru counties building on my networks in the hope of getting permanent or long term employment but none has been forthcoming.I'm a talented record producer and club Deejay and that is why when all my efforts didn't pay off I started working as a reggae Deejay, partnered with a few friends and started the mystiq movement label. I would like to turn my passion for music to a full time job and income generating opportunity by setting up a recording studio doing audio production mostly music,voice overs, radio programs and music juggling.
I'm here to ask for your help to raise funds for my recording studio, I would like to invite you all to support my journey towards self sustainability and I believe through this venture I will be able to mentor and empower others since the money raised will go towards acquisition of standardized recording equipment and also offer job opportunity to other producers & artists who have the talent but no access to proper modern recording facilities.
Thank you and Gob bless.
