He used himself as an example when he recounted how he diligently served one SRC president during his time as a level 100 student.

“Well, I don’t know Abeiku Santana but hey, if I have to serve to dine with great men, I’d do it. Even if you need to clean the shoe of the great man. In L100, I carried and polished the shoes of an SRC President until I became one in L400. My service paid but who remembered it?” he said.
