What is the first car you ever drove?
Growing up, one of our neighbours owned a radio-controlled car and he let me have a go when I was about four or five-years-old. It was super fast, and my dad couldn’t believe how good I was at driving. I then began to participate in radio-controlled car races hosted in a farm in the countryside. I was at least ten years younger than everyone else. I have a good rest the night before the race, and arrive at the track the next morning full of positivity. Before qualifiers, I listen to my favourite tracks, and pray for everyone to be safe. I always remain focussed on the job at hand, to win the race, and everything else is just noise. Thanks to years of experience, I’m able to compartmentalise what’s not important at that moment, and concentrate on getting myself and the team standing on the podium at the end of the race. Mental power is everything. Tommy Hilfiger is an iconic American brand that was impossible to miss as a kid, whether you were into fashion or not. Fashion is a growing love for me, and having attended the Tommynow runway event for several seasons, I’m always amazed at how the brand is able to reinvent itself with every collection and through innovative technology. That takes a lot of creativity, and I’m super excited to join the Tommy Hilfiger family. I like to stand out from the crowd, and Tommy Hilfiger’s cool, allAmerican designs allow me to add an effortless yet sophisticated twist to my outfits. From perfectly tailored suits to playful and elevated pieces, it’s a brand that caters to any occasion. I’m a big fan of light outerwear, like the versatile bright blue hooded jacket with racing stripe details from Tommy Hilfiger Sportswear. I love the reversible satin bomber jacket from Hilfiger Collection, which can dress up any look. I’ve always admired how Tommy never gave up on his dreams of building a global lifestyle brand, even when times were tough. I believe that when you get knocked down, it’s not how you fall that matters, but how you get back up, and Tommy and I both take life lessons away from these moments. Always believe in yourself, and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve your goals. Growing up I remember seeing the iconic Tommy Hilfiger flag on clothes that celebrities wore, like hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg and Aaliyah.
