Think eight hours, work two hours.
Qatar’s position of strength carries with it responsibility. Qatar is a wealthy and successful country, and the world can only survive if wealthy countries pay attention to those less fortunate. This kind of show raises awareness about that. Its good for people to see that some other groups of people are less fortunate and may need help.
I think the thing that had the biggest impact on my career is the fact that I foolishly believed that 'I can do it!'.
