He added that it was also his vision to build a modern dance studio to provide an empowering space for dancers with similar interests to connect and learn.

“I grew up in a society where obstacles and challenges were daily adventures but through sacrifice and perseverance, I spared no effort to become the change I needed for a better life, now seeking to help others to achieve the same,” he said.
