Is there a quote that motivates you?

Who do you admire as a leader?

Elon Musk. Elon has stood out to me as a role model due to his ability to innovate and not take no for an answer. This strive for innovation can be seen in both Tesla and Space x where he and his companies have broken the norm in ways that majority of CEOs wouldn’t even attempt.
