What do you value the most?

Honesty and respect, I believe that one should respect others and that honesty is part of this respect.

Are you a glass half empty or glass half full kind of person?

The glass is completely full, half with water half with air. Haha!

If you could do anything in the world what would it be?

I wish that I could be a full time athlete as well as some one who inspires people to stay fit and healthy.

Where do you want to be in 5-10 years from now?

I hope that I would have progressed in my judo career as well as have graduated from university and hopefully have a job related to sports and physical activity.
