The couple has been happily married for 19 years and has three children – two daughters and a son. His journey from Kenya to Sweden and then to Texas exemplifies his diverse experiences and cultural insights.
The Ngatia family finds joy in outdoor activities, from swimming to camping, and they prioritize family travel with an annual trip to the beach or other destinations. Their international connections are strong, with two trips to Sweden under their belt.
For Mwangi, trucking holds immense satisfaction in contributing to projects and seeing the end results of his deliveries. He takes pride in showcasing these achievements to his children, emphasizing the impact of his work. Additionally, the flexibility, independence, and self-reliance that come with being his own boss resonate deeply with him.
