What’s a life philosophy you live by?

“Always choose what will grow you the most, instead of what you fear.

Can you tell us how you were like when you were 25? What are the most important experiences to get out of your 20s?

Looking back in my 20s, I am very thankful that I took time to be lost and confused and asked a lot of questions.

What can people do to impress you?

The best people I look up to are the ones who ask questions and destruct themselves.

What is one action you want everyone to take away from meeting you today?

It is a very transformative experience to identify what your fears are.
