“My dad was always a huge influence on me. He always used to tell us that it doesn’t matter what you do in life but just make sure you love doing it because if you love doing it, you’ll do well. He encouraged us to do anything. My parents did not care if I was a janitor or a doctor; they really did not care. Most parents have their ego wrapped up in the kids and so they do care about what their kids do. We really grew up in this environment, in this home, where there was not this expectation.”
