He believes communication is a very important tool in fostering better understanding and making informed decisions. People need good, reliable information on things that concern them so that they can live their lives more productively. He firmly believes that youth is not an obstacle in serving the people because the best learning comes through experience and the youth has so much potential to do and be better.
