What Drives You
When I die, I want people to say that the world was a better place for me being in it – every day I strive to be a force for good in the lives of the people I’m lucky enough to encounter.
Motto for Life
“You only die once, you live every day” – essentially that every day you’re given is a new chance and a fresh start. Appreciate it!
