    Whilst my family have always taught me the difference between what is right and wrong, it is my amazing wife that as empowered me and made me the man I am today. Having been together for almost 6 years (married 1 year) I have been there to support her through a series of mental health traumas, including the loss of family members. Watching how well she dealt with these issues made me believe that anything is possible, if you put your mind to it. Since those losses, I have actually suffered with mental health issues and as a man, mental health is something that isn't really spoke about. With the support and love of my wife, she has enabled me to talk to friends, family and others about the troubles that I have (and still am) going through. She has also opened up my life to a number of other possibilities and friendships, as well as providing me with the courage and confidence to speak up about how I feel, what I really want and open up more work opportunities. She has empowered me to become a man and I now look forward to the rest of our life together, where we are soon to welcome our first child and start our journey together as mother and father.

    (Yes, that is our dog at our wedding and yes, she was our ring bearer)

    My Dad is my biggest inspiration. He has lived alone in UAE away from his family and home in India for 22 years to support us and make us what we are today. He is the perfect and best example of a husband, father, friend and overall human being. Words on this thread will never be enough to describe the love and sacrifices he has made for us. Love him more than infinity

    My mum has inspired me to become what I am today. My mum and dad originally came from India 35 years ago and had to struggle a lot and sacrifice a lot to give me and my two brothers a good life. She has always given me good teachings and morals in my life which I will use and pass on to my kids one day.

    person who has empowered me most is my dad. My dad has left everything for his children. his native, business everything and shifted to another city for us so that we could have better education, food, clothes. In new city, he built his business from scratch, bought his own house and made our life super comfortable. he did it all alone. today I am in a good position only because of him. hence he deserves the credit

    My grandfather has always been an inspiration to me. He was shipped from Denmark to Sweden at the beginning of the second World War to escape the Germans. He's lived in 4 different countries in his life and always make sure his family is always looked after and cared for. He'll always inspire me care for people

    My father. His support and lessons. The most important thing he taught me was never choosing easy ways because ease ways never bring success.
    He encourages me to work hard to achieve the goals I have chosen. He is always on my side whatever I have decided to do. Even if he does not agree with my opinion or decision he still supports me.

    To achieve great things you need to work great and never settle.

    My grandfather, no doubt. I still think of him and what he would say for every important decision I ever make. He was and always will be my best friend and losing him was one of the hardest things I've ever had to deal with in my life.

    When it comes to the person who has empowered me it has always been Mom and Dad and they will be there for me. But other than that i believe My best friend who have helped me through the tough times where i couldn't think straight about what to do.. because somethings you cannot share with your parents but there's always a friend who understands me, guides and motivates me in many ways and i believe he was there for me always whenever i needed help which i was not able to share with my parents.. he is not just a best friend but he is more than that to me .. i consider him as my big brother :)


    P.s: I have told him many times to change his phone currently he has Iphone 6 which is not in that good condition. and OnePlus 6 - Red would be great for him as his new smartphone

    Good Luck Everyone :)

    I gave up the whole tree because Apple sucks, buy a OnePlus device and never settle for less.

    Just a bit of humour, I own a OnePlus 5T, best phone ever. Enjoy OnePlus you lucky winners and have a good day.
