“I believe that extraordinary people will always have extraordinary challenges. When I look at people who inspire me, such as superlative sports figures, musicians or other celebrities, most of them had to endure a lot to get where they are. Even if you peep biblical references, the story of Jesus showed this extraordinary man having to go through extraordinary conflicts dealing with temptation and non-believers however he still stuck to his assignment. I believe I have been put here to do great things. I am constantly challenged; however, I do my best to inspire my community to move towards great things because in my mind, we are descendants of greatness.”
