What is your vision for change? Why is this important to you? 

I will quote Mahtama Ghandi "You must be the change you wish to see in the world".  I have no control or power over others but I can change myself. Therefore when I change myself my world changes, my own reality changes.  We all do have this power, and it comes from combining vision and action.  For me it is important because when we are consistent with our vision and we act on it we change the world positively. We don't have to try to change everyone, to help everyone! If I can only make one person happier and impact their lives then I am already changing the world.

What is the impact you believe your work makes in the world?

My work is focused on education, the love of knowledge and to empower people from within therefore all the people who cross my path can do their part.

What is one piece of business advice you would give to someone starting out? 

Believe in yourself and see your mistakes as a part of a journey, also to be comfortable is the enemy, the fear and hunger you can use as a motivator, will force you to push yourself to continue to survive, grow and evolve! The gift is coming right after that vertigo feeling!
