Who do you look up to the most?
It is difficult to tell a person just that I admire, I admire people who believe in their dreams,
who do good to others, who spread light, love, who understand that we are all human
beings, full of flaws, defects, and that we are here to learn and evolve every day of our lives,
I also admire who is really with himself, who keeps his essence and does not change to
please ego and vanity many times.

What health advice you were ever given and would pass on to others?
A piece of advice I received once and always step forward is to always take care of the
whole, body, mind and soul, as both are linked, and the well-being or ill-being of one always
influences the other. So take care of yourself completely
