All of the above

Your 1st email address...

...was just a random name developed at the cybercafe

Your score: You are Iliza Shlesinger's definition of an "Elder Millennial"
You are allowed to say 'back in the day', 'watoto wa siku hizi' and sit at tables where matters of national importance are discussed. Also, when the youth of Kenya are discussed, it's safe to assume no one is talking about you.
