The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

God, living, love.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a speck with a mighty purpose in this world we’ve come to call our home.

Why do you do what you do?

I believe I was planted in this path (at least for now) – might as well flourish where I’m at and make the most of every waking hour.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

It took a lot of road blocks, bumps, and tall walls before I found myself doing what I’m doing now. Sometimes the things that we usually desire to do, aren’t the things we’re meant to do. I haven’t fully figured it out yet, but hopefully, my current career path might be the right road.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Overcoming giving up on dreams I’ve had since I was a kid was hard to let go of. But once you wake up and realize that you’ve been going around in circles in the same path, you break from that circle and move on. I’m thankful for my loving family and friends who have held my hand through my rude awakenings.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

A lot of people have inspired me to become who I am for sure! There’s too many to mention! :) As for inspiring someone directly, I hope I am/did.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Make that a lot of mistakes. Cliché, but, mistakes really do make us stronger, more perseverant, more hungry to move on and achieve.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I’ve recently started to vlog – I hope I can commit to it more often! I also want EFFY to thrive and influence somehow. And I often daydream of being part of my own design studio someday soon.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Anything is impossible – until it is done.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Practice humility and love. Keep on shining.
