Favorite Quote: “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed.
I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” —Michael Jordan
I'm inspired by... Children’s creative minds, their joy in simple things, and all their possibilities for the future. People who spread love and kindness to make this world a better and
