Personal Quote:

When my mother was 5 months pregnant with me, she was hit by a car, flew 13 meters through the air, and doctors told her: The child - forget it. The main reason I survived was my mother's discipline, as she did not take painkillers despite her serious injuries. I cannot imagine these six months not having influenced my personality. I was rescued before I was even born. See more »
