"The one thing I could change about the world right now is leaders who do not realize their obligation of inspiring and providing opportunities for the people they lead".

"I'm always wishing for opportunities to do more for those who can't help themselves, to help others in the same way that so many other people helped me".

"Education gives hope because it's one thing in the world in which people can advance in life not because of who they are, where they are from or who they know, but how hard they work and how well they engage their minds".

"The world could learn a thing or two from a former mentor and sponsor of mine who once said Success is not all about how high you can climb, it’s also about how many people you bring along"

"I hope for the future that has everyone playing their part in giving children in the dark, forgotten parts of the world a shot at a better life through education".
