"I never thought my actions would mean so much to so many people, in the same way I never thought I would get this far in life but that's exactly what pushed me to do it."

He continued: "After being told and shown that I would not be able to achieve anything of significance, I started to believe it but one emotion kept me from giving up – spite.

"The drive to spite all who told me I would fail, but most importantly to spite myself. I will keep on improving and achieving things that I never thought I would be able to despite the past version of myself, I never thought I could."
