Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Some choose to dream hard, others wake up and work hard to make their dreams come true.

A. My heart, my compassion, my loyalty…

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A.
I don’t believe there is such a thing as perfect happiness. If you are truly a compassionate person you will always feel sadness in your heart for those less fortunate, those who suffer on a daily basis and those who are close to you who haven’t found their way in life or seen their dreams manifest themselves. However, I try my best to stay humble and live life in a way that ensures I don’t inflict pain on those I come into contact with on a daily basis. Living righteous brings me moments of happiness.
