Proud to share

Q: Is the success of a sibling a blessing or a curse? Last week Mark Okoth Obama Ndesandjo acknowledged that it hasn't been easy to be the half brother of President Barack Obama. How difficult is it to live with the success of a brother or a sister, even if they aren't famous?

Because my brother and sister all live in different parts of the East Coast, our lives don't overlap with the exception of family gatherings.

We share our successes with each other whether it's getting your first son off to college or selling your first million-dollar yacht. We are all equally proud of each other's accomplishments and aren't afraid to brag about each other's accomplishments.

At various points in our lives, one of us has always been more successful than the rest. And regardless of whose turn it may be, we are all equally excited for the hard work and successes.
