Rui is one of the best Mentors out there. He's very passionate about seeing his mentee grow and always willing to go the extra mile to help anywhere needed. I have grown so much learning from Rui. Rui reminded me so much of my Dad. Rui gave me so much confidence and motivation on my low days. Can't thank you enough.
