BIGGEST LESSON: “Your word matters as do the relationships you build through trust.”
FAVOURITE QUOTE: “Far greater is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in that grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt
