My childhood was not easy, and from that I became very mature in the sense of independence and certain aspects of life. Also, being an athlete I gained a sense of competitive ego on the field and that carried over to my personality, sort of a sacrastic, smart alecky person. At the same time, my past set a very soft spot in my heart. I think with my heart I am very sympathetic and passionate about many things. I guess my external self is more precocious while I'm a big softie at heart.
