Don’t give up any op­por­tu­nity and don’t do things in a half-hearted way.

What is the se­cret of your suc­cess?

When I take on a pro­ject, I do ev­ery­thing to make it bet­ter.

What do you do in your spare time?

I like to run marathons. ... I also love mu­sic. I like to sing and play drums and have recorded two al­bums.
