In his own words:
“I started from zero in Australia. I grew up in a political family who was forced to flee a dictatorship for standing up against injustice. I went from almost homeless to a business owner. I’m the result of migration and tenacity. I have an accent that portrays my background and the first-hand experience of losing everything and recreating myself.
I’m here to make a change, to help others to change; there would be no point to having gone through all of this if not to discover my life purpose, a better place for all of us. I’m living proof that we can make it together.”
