1. Tell us about your success journey as an influencer? I actually don’t think of myself as an influencer but more of an ordinary person who shares inspiring stories to help our world be a better place. Our success has come from our commitment to share information with kids in a genuine and honest way.
2. What advice would you give you give to a younger person who want to follow your footsteps?
My advice for younger people who want to follow in my footsteps is don’t try to be like anyone else. Too often people try to emulate someone they are impressed by and it never works because you simply cannot be someone else. To succeed, focus on what excites you and share that with others in your own, unique way. As Oscar Wild said, ‘Be yourself. Everyone else is taken’.
3. What do you do for your well-being?
You cannot fill someone’s jug unless yours is full. To take care of myself I journal, doodle, read, meditate and exercise daily.
