It’s a journey of self-discovery, constantly finding that path. Deep down, I yearn to live like a carefree boy, running across green fields and playing like a child. I often act upon this desire.

However, upon joining charitable organizations and engaging with people in need outside my homeland, I discovered the true meaning behind it. Being able to contribute positively and give back to society became a driving force for me, inspired by the recognition received from influential figures. The realization that consistency is key dawned on me after dedicating nearly a decade to such endeavors. It’s my way of expressing gratitude for the immense support I have received.”
