Q: What inspires you in life?
A: The kids in my life. Living with a sense of purpose. The human characteristics that I love: courage, tenderness, love, and finding these traits throughout the world, from the children I've worked with in Africa to the Elephants in Thailand.
Q: What is your greatest passion in life?
A: Following my calling. Being true to who I am.

A: I feel fortunate to collaborate with The Botshabelo children'ss village in South Africa. An elephant sanctuary in Thailand also known as Elephant Nature Park (ENP), as well as having the privilege to mentor at The Power of One Program. I also keep a facebook page for Grey Matters.
Q: Mini bio, interesting facts about you or something special you want to share.
A: It doesn't matter how small or big your actions towards changing the world might be, what matters is that by pushing towards being a better human being we are already making the change happen.
