Que aquel que logró que lo dejaran trabajar en un supermercado siendo menor de edad, para poder ayudar económicamente a su familia, quien tuvo que irse a vivir a Colombia porque no tenía dinero ni para gasolina porque los vicios eran su prioridad, a quien la mayoría de sus colegas le dieron la espalda en aquel entonces y quien se llamó el mismo como "un bochorno dentro del género" por los problemas físicos y personales que arrastraba. Aquel que tuvo que romper "en frío" encerrado en un cuarto por días para iniciar el proceso que lo guió por el camino de logros que hoy todo el mundo conoce.
