What do I believe in?

🫶 Empathy is key. Considering where others are coming from and how it affects their behavior helps create a safe and effective environment.

🫂 Learn from others. I know I'm not the sole source of truth, and I want to gain knowledge from others.

🏅 Lead by example. I can only expect to be treated as I treat others. By being empathetic and kind, I believe I inspire others to do the same.

❤️ Love without fear. I simply adore love and people because that's what truly makes me feel alive and happy.

👪🏿 Family is everything. Family comes first.

☀️ Live now. Life is two days, and one of them is raining.
