”Thank you, Forbes, for this platform wherein we can give back to the people who enabled us to be where we are today and to hopefully inspire others as well to do their part to the best of their ability to improve the lives of others. Because a small gesture can create a ripple effect if we can influence others to do the same. Once again, thank you for this great honor."
