Who was your role model when you were young?
My other brother Kenny. He was never afraid to try new things, new sports, new subjects at school and even something as simple as new music. He was his own person who wanted to explore without the fear of peer pressure. I never realized how important this attribute was until I was already grown up yet I tried to emulate him as much as possible.
