Learn By Sharing

Hello reader, have you ever wondered how the internet works? Instead of waiting for content to show up on your online news feed, resolve to contribute to other news feeds. The same way we like receiving, we should also learn to give. I challenge you to share everything you learn you will notice a boost in your knowledge retention, number of followers online, self-esteem and your brain power.

You read a lot online daily and when you learn something and share it, it sticks better in your brain as you explain it to your friends, followers and the entire online community. We all know that sharing is caring but this is not just sharing material stuff but knowledge too.

I recently started sharing most of my reading and analysis experiences with people around me and in turn, I noticed the good this has done. Whenever I gave anyone a lecture about what I have experienced or learnt, in most cases, they also gave me one. This has helped me improve myself and also improve others.

How you can start this. With MTN Pulse, you can now access cheaper and faster internet to read more, learn more and share more. Personally, I can’t say I have shared knowledge with millions of people yet but rather, I have started with my followers, connections, friends, workmates, acquaintances, business partners both online and offline.

At the start, I feared to share my thoughts, knowledge, content and opinions online. I always felt like my content wasn’t good enough and would receive heavy criticism. I overcame that fear eventually by starting with just a few sentences accompanied by pictures on my social media platforms and to date and worked my way upwards.

Just as I have shared this with you, anything you may take away from my many words, kindly care enough to share with at least 1 person either verbally or in your online networks.

Knowledge, when shared with others, travels wide and far as it creates a ripple effect with immeasurable reach. With Pulse, Lets Share With #NoFear.

Pulse Rewind! Billie Eilish, 18 years, Wins 5 Grammy Awards Out of 6 Nominations

American teenage sensation, Billie Eilish, who sang “Bad Guy” has made history in the music industry after making impressive wins at the biggest stage of music awards and appreciation in the whole world, The Grammy Awards of 2020.

At the show that was hosted by Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish won best vocal pop album, album of the year and record of the year (When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?), song of the year (“Bad Guy”) and best new artist.

As if winning big wasn’t enough, she became the youngest person to be nominated for, and to win, awards in all four general-field categories (album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best new artist) in a single outing.

“I never thought this would happen in my whole life. I feel like I jump around at these things and I never take anything seriously, but I genuinely want to say that I’m so grateful and I’m honored to be here.” The 18 year old said in her acceptance speech for song of the year.

The awards ceremony paid tribute to fallen basketball star Kobe Bryant when in her opening monologue, Alicia Keys was joined by Boys II Men to sing a moving tribute for the former LA Lakers shooting guard. Kobe died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter GiGi Bryant.

“We’re literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built.” Alicia Keys said at the Staples Center, this year’s venue for the Grammy Awards.

How To Maintain Your Hair In The Heat

In Uganda, there’s usually no hotter month than January probably because it is coupled with a lot of worrying about money. The lack of money doesn’t make the heat any better but you have to find coping mechanisms to be able to get through it all.

For the female pulsers, your hair care during this time is very crucial so here is how you can take care of your hair during this hot season:

Plait light hair
You need to plait hair styles that are light on the head because the big hair causes you to sweat a lot. Light hair also enables you to stay comfortable and manage the heat in a more friendly manner.

Let your hair out

As opposed to plaiting, you can simply leave your hair out during this time. This is very easy to maintain and style so you don’t have to stress a lot in the heat. This also gives room for your hair to aerate.

Regular oiling

You don’t want your scalp to become very dry during this time, so it is important to oil your hair as often as possible so that your hair pours stay open. You can get yourself your preferred hair oil and pay for it using MTN Momo pay and stand a chance to win a shopping spree worth UGX 1,000,000.

Use head wraps

Head wraps should be something that every girl should have in their wardrobe. They are even more important during this time because they protect your scalp and hair from having direct contact with the hot sun and Ultraviolet rays which may damage your hair. Alternatively you can also use hats as opposed to head wraps.

With just these few tips, you should be able to go through the raining days of January easily.
