While it was so unexpected, it was highly and humbly received with joy. Grateful for the nomination. This is my first accolade. Makes it the more meaningful. I hope that it will not be the last. As Dr. Namrata said, “… because when we start receiving too many awards, … we start losing interest in the awards.”

What is your best childhood memory?
Having our Dad drive us to, or pick us from, school when our dedicated driver doesn’t show up for work were always joyous moments. Picking us up meant that we get to hang out with him at his social club – lots to eat, games to play, and chat with the grown-ups.
If you had a chance for a “do-over” in life, what would you do differently?
Not take time off from my education; finish before marrying and/or starting a family
How do you spend your free time?
Rest, read a good book, or watch basketball.
What do you feel most proud of?
Probably completing college
What skill(s) would you like to learn and why?
- Play the piano
Missed learning when I was younger and believe that I can still learn both.
What is your strongest quality?
Quiet confidence; ability to keep calm in the middle of chaos
If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?
- My Bible
- Phone and charger
- Teabags, Sugar & Creamer
What teacher in school made the most impact on you and why?
The students nicknamed him Dr. Death in the college. I got a low C in my first test in his Management class and was terribly upset. Went to him to challenge it. He told me no-one ever challenges his grade, but since you have, …” He gave me some advice and allowed me to rewrite the paper. I ended up taking three more classes with him.
Who do you most admire in your life?
Besides my parents, anyone who stands up for truth and justice in face of adversity. Such people like Nelson Mandela, MLK, Mahatma Gandhi
Do you believe in luck?
No, but in the invisible hands of God orchestrating all things aka divine orchestration.
