Who is your biggest idol / inspiration and why? 

I don’t really have a biggest idol or inspiration, but I have a lot of time for people who are trying to change the future for the next generations. People such as Elon Musk and Bill Gates are fascinating in terms of their thought processes and the progress they have made in a relatively short space of time.
