I get inspired by endless possibilities to learn and to discover new things.
I love sharing aquaired knowledge and my experiences with others.
I love reaching out towards people's minds and hearts, people's ears and eyes.
I enjoy provoking people to think outside of the box in order to strech their mindsets, contradict the stereotypes and break mental chains of cultural assumptions.
