“It shows a lot of what we have done for ourselves. According to Abraham Maslow’s theory in the five hierarchies of needs, self-actualization is part of it and I have gotten to the top of the ladder of self actualization. I feel elated,I feel I have achieved, I feel fulfilled because fulfillment is a personal thing. Wealth is what people can see but fulfillment is what I see and the reflection is going to show in the maritime industry.
Your next agenda?
“My next agenda is not politics but philanthropy because this shows that my little and humble beginning people saw it and they acknowledged it and now I have to take it further by taking more responsibilities and going to the grassroots, empowering more youths to go to school because the foundation is key.
Any specific requirements for this award?
I don’t think there is any specific requirements,I just know that people who have achieved in their own chosen careers,is like showing appreciation to them and trying to push them to do more that is just it.
A word of encouragement?
Work hard,trust God,be straight forward,mercy will come
