Jason Tom You are amazing. I listened all your interview. You were right in everything you said. "the more we age the more we learn..." "because if we stop learning we stop growing" This part I loved the most, but also I loved the way you talked. Man, you know how to talk ! Your talk seemed very relaxed, and friendly, and I loved listening your voice until the end. I am really proud of you. ♥️ Has been an honor to listen you during almost one hour, and at the end I really was surprised that you mentioned my name first. I am so happy for that ♥️ Keep doing same good work with your beatbox, keep growing. I'm sending you all my LOVE , and thanks a lot for thinking of me during your interview. I really appreciate. ♥️♥️♥️
