I've shaped my life according to how I want to live it, instead of how the systems were set up for me to live it...

"Sometimes I fight the system just because I want to fight the system. It can be pretty frustrating for my friends because we'll be having a conversation and I'll be fighting for something that I don't really even believe in. And it can be hard for me too. Like, I don't want to get married or have kids. I don't want to do it because everybody else is doing it, and that doesn't make sense. I should do it if I want to do it. So, it has its downsides. But being rebellious is a big part of who I am. And the upside is that I've shaped my life according to how I want to live it, instead of how the systems were set up for me to live it. I think that's the basis of entrepreneurship — deciding what you don't like about the world and doing something different. It's about solving the problem that motivates you to change a little piece of the world."⠀
