The importance of paying it forward was instilled in me by my parents from a very early age. Truth be told, in my own journey, I have benefitted tremendously from the advice, help, and kindness of others. Without such gifts, I would not be where I am today. It is just basic common sense to pay it forward.
While growing up, I focused primarily on establishing community service organizations and leading local initiatives such as fundraising drives for orphanages and children hospices. Lately, I have been expanding my efforts to help individuals more directly through advising, speaking, and writing.
