Anerlisa Muigai, the daughter of founder and chief executive of Keroche Breweries Tabitha Karanja, is a big campaigner of simple living despite her family’s immense wealth.

Her latest Instagram post cautioned young people against being endeared to material things.

“When you die they won’t remember your car or house. They will remember who you were. Be a good human, not good materialist,” wrote Muigai.

This is the reason why after retiring I would like to open an institute that will uplift young entrepreneurs to be what they want to become. Unfortunately most of the youth have so much to offer but always fall short because of no support. A couple of weeks ago I came across this amazing lady's message that really caught me. What really amazed me was the fact that she went through so much in her life but still did not want to give up… she still remained hopeful of pursuing her design work. Fast forward to today I reached out to @Michellenyambare +254 722 598 687 and helped her realise her dream. All she ever wanted was to make me an outfit and to be honest after reading her story, I was sold. This week she delivered two dresses and I am so happy to have given her a chance. The dresses are great and I look forward to more ankara dresses from her. Thank you Michelle for your kindness and I believe your business is destined for greatness. Its amazing how much we have shared together remembering how scared you were even taking my measurements. I wish you all the best. ? Aner.. Ps. The catwalk is for you Michelle. You should be very proud of yourself and never doubt that you can be whatever you want to be. Have a great weekend.God bless. ? @julianakanyomozi – Right here ?

Miss Muigai, who is also the founder and chief executive of NERO, a water bottling company, recently took to Instagram to vent her frustrations on untrustworthy and fake friends.

“…so many people think that I have a heart of steel. When I have problems they don’t even care to call and check up on me. I am expected to be okay no matter the situation. It’s also funny how some people expect me to be there for them but nobody is ever there for me. When I post something heartbreaking, they only call to get the gossip and after that nobody even cares…” part of the post read.
