Beliefs

‎One of my favourite quotes is one by the late poet Maya Angelou: 'My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style'.
I believe that merely surviving or existing is not enough; one has to make a differe‎nce in the world.
I made‎ up my mind a long time ago to be different and to do something that will change the world; make it better. That's why I studied medicine, and now am a social entrepreneur, because an entrepreneur doesn't just start a company, he solves problems.
These are my convictions; and most of all i'd rather be dead than ordinary.
