Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

When I was in my teenage, I always wanted to be a successful man. As I grew up my mindset kept shifting from be a successful man to be a motivator or a public figure. One day a phone call got woken me up and have been told that I accepted into the college, I tried every single way to share this news with families and friends but still couldn’t satisfied myself. So some sort of epiphany feelings crossed my mind why not to have this news on a social media platform like Facebook and Instagram. So from that point, I started my journey on social media.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

Well, everyday people’s love makes my day interesting, however, I got a message from one of my followers said, “I like your style, I like your body (physique), how can I be you?” Usually, I don’t reply to messages, but this one really got me and I had to reply to this one. So I said “Listen, I really appreciate your thought about me but you gotta listen to me. Everyone in this world has its own place, that’s why we all are unique. My place has been taken by me. Find your own place and be an inspiration to others.”

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Whatever happened in your past don’t cling to it. Move on and have fun in the present.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

I’m grateful for my family who helped me along the way. But, there are other things that I need to grateful for, that’s my problem. Yes, my problems really helped to thrive where I’m right now and it actually still does help every day it gives me a motivation why should I keep moving forward. Don’t take problems as barriers take it as a booster trust me it works.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

The only platform I have is social media. I try to spread my knowledge to those who follow me. Maybe one of those gets inspired and let the buried skill inside of her/his to come out and do something new in this world. Who knows who we’re inspiring.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

Of course, I’m sure everyone in another way inspired by quotes. Here’s my favorite one. “IN THE HANDS OF MAN

He who creates a poison also has the cure.

He who creates a virus also has the antidote.

He who creates chaos also has the ability to create peace.

He who sparks hate also has the ability to transform it to love.

He who creates misery also has the ability to destroy it with kindness.

He who creates sadness also has the ability to covert it to happiness.

He who creates darkness can also be awakened to produce illumination.

He who spreads fear can also be shaken to spread comfort.

Any problems created by the left hand of man,

Can also be solved with the right,

For he who manifests anything,

Also has the ability to destroy it.” ― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
