His father abandoned the family when he was age eight, and he and his five siblings were brought up by his mother. "It was a tough childhood. I admire the courage of my mother for everything she has done for us. I want to set the example by encouraging the new generations, I believe in my work. It is important to change the mentality in my area, in the gymnastics community. I want to arouse ambition in them, make them believe and prove it with results. We must propose to change this violent country through sport, art, music. While you cannot pretend to change everything, it is important to provide opportunities for children."
