Favorite quote / an idea that guides you in life: Nothing in the world is the way it ought to be. – It’s harsh, and cruel. – But that’s why there’s us. Champions. It doesn’t matter where we come from, what we’ve done or suffered, or even if we make a difference. We live as though the world was what it should be, to show it what it can be.
Being Strong is to keep on fighting. Cause life is hard and painful and it´s everyday.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now: Maybe inspiring the younger generation that if you give the time and effort to it, it can be done.
