On losing his virginity at a young age…

“Maybe (I) was naïve, and had drank a little as well. The person was just a friend, but not someone I loved…I’m very regretful, even after I get married I will still regret it.” He added, “This is not something good, kids should never do this.”

On his faith as a Christian…

“My belief in God makes me feel secured. It lets me know who I am, lets me know how to be certain of myself, and lets me learn to be thankful. It gives me greater power, letting me reborn with peace and hope. That’s why no matter what other people says, I know I’m doing the right thing.”
