Three people I would love to invite to dinner: Lionel Messi, Eminem and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The best advice I ever received was: Never stop learning.

The most amazing thing I’ve ever done is: Spent a week on a small island in Fiji.

If I was down to my last $10 I would spent it on: Chewing gum — something that lasts a while.

 If I could have a super power it would be: Slow down time, like in The Matrix.

My favourite phrase is . . ..“Throw me to the wolves and I’ll return leading the pack.”

 My hidden talent is: I’m good at creating beats with anything. I don’t own a drum set but anything like two pens will do.

 If I could travel back in time, I would love to meet: Yip Man, Grandmaster of Wing Chun.

The one thing I will never throw out: My black belt (taekwondo).

My last meal would be: Satay chicken.

My first car was:  Nissan Skyline R34.

I’m always being asked: How’s the weather up there?

My most embarrassing moment was . . . Running into a parked car.

What people may not know about me is: I have never broken a bone *knocks on wood*.

In the future . . . It is all untold, I believe we must focus on all the greater things in life that we currently have today and live every day to the fullest like it’s your last.
