“What inspired me to do what I do is striving to be the change that I want to see in society, we mainly complain about our background and the obstacles we face, but I thought that it was about time that we take the initiative and take the steps to develop our communities. I felt that my part was to do something significant in the community. Pain has propelled me to be the man that I am today, I was tired of the circumstances that I had to face, so I became the change I wanted to see. I would advise young people to believe that all things are possible, everyone is born with a great purpose within themselves. Have the courage to begin, if you have the courage to begin you will succeed. Remain teachable and humble at all times.”
