Advice & tips to give to the youth:
To work hard, to be attentive, to be persevering and to have respect... To put our uncertainties and our fears of sides while knowing that nothing is ACQUIRED for the first, the second and even the third times. That is an important lesson. Successful people are those who keep trying after failing several times.
