What inspires you?

Nature’s beauty and tranquility. The world of books and its knowledge. Sweet family gatherings and the warmth of togetherness. University campuses and the energy of learning. Libraries as quiet sanctuaries of wisdom.

What relationship has been most influential in your life?

The most influential relationship in my life has been with myself. It is the journey of self-discovery, growth, and personal development that has had a profound impact. This relationship has taught me about resilience, willpower, and the capacity to evolve and achieve what I aspire to.
