At my job, I’m a mid-level manager supervising about a dozen staff and 8 clients. All of my staff are older than me, some by a few years and others by decades. The newest member on our team was hired about a month ago and when I mentioned that I had started driving 5 years ago after I moved from New York to this area she said to me, “I started driving in Lagos in 1970.”
In 1970, my parents had not even met and I was just a word written in al Lawh al-Mahfoodh and now I’m her boss. SubhanAllah.
