"I only work on what I am passionate about, nothing more and nothing less. We live in an age of egos and wanting more, but not me. I just want to make a difference and I can really care less if anyone knows about what projects I am involved... as long as the goal to educate and make change is reached. I take on every opportunity as if I have nothing to lose."
