A 23 year old student who enjoys investing my time, skills, wisdom, knowledge and even money into start-up ideas. I especially like proving that 100% ethical, legal and respectful actions can still get you a long way in the world. It won't make you rich overnight but it will make you happy in a second!

On YWB, I endeavour to promote ways of bettering yourself or others.
