A sense of humor is part of the art of leadership, of getting along with people, of getting things done.

My favorite hobby is: spending time with my family, doing community service, and just relaxing while watching TV.

In 10 years, I hope to be: a dentist that travels to rural villages to volunteer my services.

If I were an animal, I would be: a dog! I love my dog, and he is my best friend. I can cuddle and pour all my troubles on him.

I think PTPI is important because: PTPI teaches youth that it is possible to start young making a difference.

The best moment at the GYF was: listening to Raul Magdaleno's speech. He is such a positive and inspirational speaker!
