He believes that a person’s greatness is not measured by his material achievements in life, but rather the positive impact he has left in the lives of others. He welcomes you to join him on this inspiring journey, to educate and to make a change. Oh, and he’s obsessed with cats!

She is fascinated by the world and its workings, and is constantly trying to satisfy this curiosity. She finds the cause of UKECharisma close to her heart.
