How would you describe yourself?
‘Um. I’d describe myself as, I suppose selfless and always striving to improve something about myself. Um, so yeah I suppose I, like to put, I put pretty much everyone that’s close to me before myself, which can sometimes be a little bit of a flaw but it’s something I can’t really, can’t really help (laughs). Um yeah and just constantly pushing to improve and I suppose better myself as a person.’
Why did you choose this message for your sign?
‘Um, this message is actually, um, it’s like I suppose a saying at my gym. I train at um, sort of like a, a combat sports gym, um, where I train mixed martial arts and jujitsu. Um. I suppose it really just shows that anything that you really want to be successful with, you have to make some kind of sacrifice. Um, with me, I train quite a lot, um and to get better, I’m sacrificing parts, um, of my life like going out to parties and things like that because I want to improve, and get um, I suppose become really good at what, at what I’m training to do. So I suppose that’s what that really means to me, yeah.’
