The thing that makes me unique is the determination of not giving up. The whole team can be losing their hope but i'm there to pull them back up and, no matter what, I will do my best to help you.
IF YOU WERE AN ANIMAL, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU BE? AND WHY?
I would be a Tiger. I’m not a type of person that is seeking for attention or spotlight, this is why I have these stripes to camouflage myself in the high grass. When i'm hungry, I don’t run for the prey. I wait and plan all the possible outcomes. Once I see that the time is right, I use all my energy to reach my goal. I'm not selfish hunter, I share with my family and friends. Im not spoiled, I give value of what I have. I might look kind and cute but, if you trip on my tail, I will release the beast on you.

The three things that I would take with me on an island are: 400 litters of pure water, I have enough water to survive for more than a year and enough time to find a way to refill the empty bottles. Swiss army knife to prepare food, protect ourselves, and build a shelter and other structures. A magnifying glass or a mirror to start a fire, feel warm and be able to cook.
WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES?
Determination: I will do my best to reach my goal no matter how long it takes. Weaknesses: I'm too kind.
