"I remembered what my mentor Freddy said about not letting the ego part take over. I found myself in a hostile situation at school where a kid wanted to fight me. And I also knew that if I would have fought him, I probably would have been kicked off my soccer team. I restrained myself from fighting. I chose what I love, which was soccer, and not this egotistical situation. I now practice LoveNoEgo on a daily basis with so many things. Thanks Freddy!"

"What Freddy has taught me most is to simply and genuinely to do what I love without stepping on other people's toes."
