My all-time role model is my father because he taught me to be the best at whatever I do and above everything, to be patient.
The best advice I’d give to my younger self is: Take your time, don’t rush. In other words, walk down the hill, don’t run.
My favorite book of all time is: As a Man Thinketh
The three things I can’t live without are: God, family and knowledge of who I am as a human being.
