Steve Jobs will always be in my mind. He was indeed an influential person in my life, an inspiration and a role model. He was living proof that you can create your own destiny, without worriying too much about the path society expects you to follow to be defined as successful.
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs
