I don’t fall sick, I don’t know how that’s happened but I’m thankful,” he expressed, encouraging others to persevere and pursue their dreams regardless of their health condition.

He emphasized that sickle cells should not be a barrier to achieving one’s goals. “This is me reaching out to everyone currently going through it, having to deal with the cramps and all the crises.
