“One word of  inspiration: Self-Belief”

“I owe a lot to my parents but they came from a very working class background and they believed undoubtedly in me improving myself”

David Roberts

“I think more than anything else, fear of failure, I think that’s the biggest motivator, I think because of where I come from, I know that ultimately everything disappears, but I can survive, because you just have to”
