I’m good at………listening to people and solving problems.

I’m very bad at……managing time. I always feel like there is a sense of urgency.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is………I understood that understanding is everything. Once you understand things in life or around you, you no longer become anxious.

A common misconception of me is…….I am a workaholic. I’m not I just do what needs to be done.

One of my worst childhood fears was……….flesh-eating insects, they are very rare.

My ideal night out is………with friends at a friend’s place exchanging stories or at a bar with friends.

In another life I’d have been……….a monk.

If I was a politician, I would……..make food free (if I was the President).

The best age to be is……..whichever age you are today, because it is rooted in the present

The best part of my job is……..I get to meet new people and think of new ways to solve old problems.

My greatest regret is………I never got to know myself sooner.

Historical figure I most identify with……….Siddhārtha Gautama, also known as the Buddha, and apartheid icon and former South African President Nelson Mandela.

Living person I most admire……US President Barack Obama.

My greatest achievement is…….still being alive and learning.

My favourite writer is……….Malcolm Gladwell.

My lowest point of misery was………when my uncle passed on. I was older than him but we were close.

My greatest possession is……..my heart. I find that I have room for all sorts of things the moment I decided to  care to be sensitive enough.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be……….. Keep it up!
