I have crossed many paths and in the process, crossed the path of so many people who have greatly helped my race. The journey has taken me from primary school to the university and through the ranks of journalism/communication profession. Apart from the huge gratitude to God Almighty, I also want to use the day to acknowledge/appreciate those people our paths have crossed in the race of the last fifty years.
