“As long as you have tried your best, that is all that matters to us.” This is what my Dad said to me when I was 8 years old.
A simple request but one that I have battled with all my life. As a child I tried to do my best, whether it be playing sport or studying for an exam. As an employee in the film industry I tried my best to fulfil my responsibilities and meet deadlines. However it was as a teacher that I felt I was really trying my best to educate my students and change lives. I won some accolades to confirm this belief, but deep down I began to question myself on what my dad really meant by trying my best.
I began thinking that trying my best also means giving my absolute all. As time passed, with the support of my dear wife, a fire started in me to give my all in life, to do something that really mattered.
So here I am today! I am blending my passions for tea and education by starting a tea company. The idea is to sell quality tea from the East to the West, then use some of the profits to help provide education to children in local communities.
I may fail or I may succeed but what is guaranteed is that I will surely give it all that I’ve got.
