What was your earliest childhood ambition?
I wanted to build a tiny house with a mezzanine in the country side.⁣

Who was or still is your mentor?
My grandmother. This is because of her “life is too short, every day counts” attitude. She has always wanted me to do whatever makes me truly happy and helped me to do so my whole life. People like that are hard to come by.⁣

What difference are you striving to make in the world?
To be a little happier and humble for the success of others. Competition is healthy and natural but we should be cheering each other on not tearing each other down.



Ambition or talent: which matters more to success?
Ambition in my eyes. Everyone who works hard for it, should be rewarded with success.⁣

If there was one piece of advice you could give to people aspiring to do what you do, what would it be?
Stay humble.⁣

What is the greatest challenge of our time? 
Getting greedy. It’s so hard to get carried away in a world with so much to give.
