“As a student, I dreamed of having the knowledge to create what I imagined. As an engineer, I dreamed of having the time to further develop new ideas. As most of us, I dreamed of having the income to create the life I wanted. Today, I am manifesting those dreams and inspiring others to chase theirs through impact driven entrepreneurship, community development, public speaking, and podcast.”
