What motivates you?

My faith motivates me, and the belief that where you start – no matter how humble that beginning is – doesn’t determine where you finish. I am an example of that.

What is the greatest invention of all time?

Planes, trains and automobiles! I love to travel and those inventions allow me to do so.
