Who is your hero?
My mother, because of her unconditional love and dedication to all of her six children. She brought us to this country of opportunity and she always has been by our side every time we need her.
What motivates you?
My two children, Zavier and Johniel, because they are the ones who keep me going. They are the motor that gives me energy and strength to wake up every day and go to work.
