What is your favorite quote and what makes it so meaningful to you?

“My Richness is Life Forever” by Bob Marley. This quote was a response by Bob Marley to the question regarding whether he considered himself rich/wealthy. It is meaningful to me because it reminds me of the truth of life on earth and what really matters. The things that matter in this world are not the things of temporary nature, but rather, things that last forever.

If you weren’t in your current job, what would be your dream job?

Professional soccer player.

Name one song you listened to “on repeat” in the past 12 months and provide some insights about why couldn’t you get enough of it?

“Fall” by Nigerian artist Davido. I had to put it on repeat because my 2 year old son keep asking me to play that “banana song” over and over again. It is one of my favorite songs too, but not sure I would have otherwise have it on repeat.
