My Story

Firstly, I was born in 1960 and raised in Uganda, the Pearl of Africa. Then I attended Shimoni Demonstration and Nakasero Primary school. Thirdly, I went to Nairobi for my Secondary and completed my college in the United States. When I returned from the United States, I set up a construction company in Soroti district instead of joining the family businesses. Five years later, I became the Managing Director of Alam Group where I currently hold the Group Managing Director Position.


Text A is not a terrible paragraph. However, the differences are clear as day. Text B does a better job of showing there are three separate arguments to support the statement with a definite conclusion. The reader never has to wonder whether a sentence still belongs to the previous argument or a new one. Moreover, it even shows the relationship between sentences within one argument. Therefore, people are going to find it easier to read this text and will stay on the page longer. And this is just one short, conveniently arranged paragraph!

Firstly, the only way to truly learn a skill is by actually doing what you’ll have to do in the real world. Secondly, I think practice can be a fun way of putting in the necessary hours. There are, however, some people who will disagree. Thirdly, and most importantly, it is said that people tend to remember only 10-20% of what they read or hear. Moreover, that number rises to as much as 90% when you put theory to practice. In conclusion, following up explanation with practice is key to mastering a skill.
