- Ben “Humble” Muresan

“I don't live in low levels of intention. It never worked for me. I was blessed as an immigrant that I got to see another side of life, a greater struggle than we see in North America. I got to see people living below week would call the poverty line struggling day to day. And then if I was blessed enough to be, brought to Canada as a young kid, What a waste of a life. If I don't do something significant, what a waste of an opportunity if I don't take it seriously.” -
