Without further ado, here it goes…

A quote or philosophy that keeps you going when the chips are down

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do." - Steve Jobs. This philosophy encourages me to find passion in my endeavours, as genuine enthusiasm and commitment are essential for achieving excellence and fulfilment.

Your guilty pleasure

Having Hookah

The last time you tried something new

A life lesson you learned the hard way

Being where I am today wasn’t easy for me. I became a self-made person very early due to a lack of resources I had to start earning. I did small jobs, did not complete my education, and learned through my way of life to be here.

What gets you excited about life?

Travel makes me excited

What’s on top of your bucket list?

I want to capture all the countries of the world through my lens.

If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?

Do everything with passion. Love your work. Be compassionate with people

One thing you would most like to change about the world

If I could change one thing about the world, it would be to foster global empathy and understanding. Many of the world's problems, from conflicts to social injustices, stem from a lack of empathy and understanding among people of different cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives. By promoting a culture of empathy, we could bridge divides and address issues such as discrimination, inequality, and violence. Encouraging individuals to see the world from others' viewpoints would lead to more compassionate and inclusive societies, where cooperation and mutual respect are the norms. This shift in mindset could pave the way for more effective solutions to global challenges, fostering a world where everyone feels valued and connected.

An activity that keeps you motivated and charged during tough times

Meeting people of all age groups. And learn from their experiences motivates me during tough times.  

What lifts your spirits when life gets you down?

Spending time with my child lifts my spirits when I am down.

Your go-to stress buster

Spending time with my wife and friends. Going out on outings.
