BONEIRUUUUUUUUUUUUU, HOPI HOPI DANKI, thank you to each one of you for the support and to keep following me through this journey.
1 hour 40 minutes is a record, and I am proud of it. It was not an easy task but we made it.
It's not what you can hold in your hand, it's what you can do with what you hold in your hand.
I consider myself a winner but more importantly I want to encourage others to WORK And follow their dreams.
The smile remains And we keep moving forward with a positive mind.
