He witnesses life in the open air and is very passionate about reading. He also loves and practices cycling, road and mountain biking, in competition.Having grown up in the cane fields and having been very influenced by reading since he was young, thanks to his father, The SugarCane Boy peaked into his interest, when he stumbled upon it on Facebook. His story in his own words:

“After seeing that several former colleagues were part of the initiative, I contacted Roma, Founder and partner of The Sugarcane Boy Bookclub, who kindly made my introduction and here I am as a member! I deeply believe in the importance of reading in a child’s development but as Samuel T. Reddy says so well, supervision is also very important. I think that the mix of the 2 that our group brings will do a lot of good to many children and gradually to parents”
