Think Beyond Convention

 
 

“It is important to think beyond convention. The worst thing is people being overly concerned with doing things the “right way” as opposed to their own way. I believe in learning, I lead because of failing as follower. I enjoy making something out of nothing, because it’s much more interesting that way.”
