What is your life motto?
"Still I Rise" is my metaphor for life. This means battling adversity and getting back up from any challenge or failure. It is also about learning lessons and following dreams. Life is full of chances for growth. It is also a motivational phrase in that no matter how bad things seem in your own life, there is always someone fighting through something worse, so you must think, if they can do it so can I. Everyday is a new opportunity to be better and rise again so therefore you should always have a positive outlook on life. 

If you could take any famous person to dinner, who would it be?
Sir Winston Churchill because I think he is a fascinating man in History as he led England through World War II. It would be amazing to ask him personally about his strategies for the war and how he dealt with leading a nation through one of the most hostile periods of time in history. 

What is the one thing that you have done in your life that even surprises you? Scoring a hole in one in golf. 

On a deserted island, what three things would you take with you? Fishing rod, guitar and a soccer ball. 

What do you wish to accomplish most in your life? A personal goal of mine is to climb Mt. Everest.
