Starting out from scratch is hard, scary, challenging and possibly one of the boldest things anyone can do.
Moving from your parents home into the city with the hope of making it big often takes the mightiest of people to a tiny room somewhere in Nairobi.
It involves a simple bed, a bunch of buckets, plastic chairs and probably a table cooker that can at least prepare a decent meal.
Often, people feel too ashamed to admit they reside in bedsitters but others choose to wear their freedom like a badge!
A Facebook user named Innocent Criminol chooses to be counted among those who are proud of their humble beginnings.
And his humility incorporates class and good taste.
The bachelor who lives in a mabati room knows too well that he can make do with whatever little he has.
His walls are decorated with special nets and his floor is covered in a neatly placed PVC carpet.
The surrounding in his home is both calming and very organised.
Going by the photos he shared on Facebook page Home Beautiful, his shoes are placed in an orderly manner and a corner in his room has been transformed into a workable kitchen.
Innocent even has a tiny rack he uses to store his utensils and the other side of his residence has been turned into a very cosy and comfy bedroom.
As previously noted, Violet Evans never lacked anything as a child even though she did not come from a wealthy family.
Her father worked as a security guard and always gave her all she needed.
The teacher decided to return the favour by constructing a wonderful three bedroom house in the village for her dear dad.
