Ripple had a significant impact on building his character and competence. He entered Ripple knowing that he would learn something new and would later shape his new passions in life.

It changed his perspective on companies because a healthy company focuses on the members' growth and not just money alone. They mold their members to grow and become good followers and leaders. That is why he is thankful for having an ideal company culture in Ripple.
His message to other freelancers is to “Never to fear failure.” For someone to grow and develop, that person will expect many disappointments in life. However, do not let those failures hinder you from reaching your personal goals in life.
