Who inspires you/who is your role model? Nelson Mandela is my role model because in spite of all the negative things that happened to him, he changed it all into positive thoughts and actions. This helped him to be one of the best leaders ever.

Motto: Vision without execution is just hallucination.

Nelson Mandela’s saying: “I am the master of my own faith and the captain of my soul.”
