What is the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice? The best advice I’ve ever received was from my mother who told me to always ask questions about anything I could, so that’s what I did, from a young age I asked anything I could about anything I could think of.
Where do you see yourself in five years? I will be on the road to setting up my own veterinarian clinic.
If you could change anything what would it be? I hope to start now to make changes, starting with our educational system curriculum. I wish for the young adults who are being admitted and pursuing higher education to become the future’s doctors, lawyers, and politicians who will light a torch toward a thriving society.
If you could invite three people to dinner (other than relatives) who would they be and why? Audrey Hepburn, she was a remarkable young woman who was a paragon of class and lived a humble life. Jeff Bezos, The CEO of Amazon and the richest man in the world, I could surely ask for advice about the steps he took to succeed. Malcolm Gladwell: One of my favorite authors who has written many of my favorite books.
