“I did not know Jean, and one day I received a message from him with his story, and I was very moved. Above all, the phrase:” One achieves what is difficult and attempts the impossible. “. That put into words a feeling I always had or a way of facing a life that I always had. I liked it a lot. I connected with it. He sent me the material from the Himalayas. I found it to be an exciting story of overcoming, and I really like people who suffer problems and not only do not fall but get up on the positive side. So that was the trigger, it was a message from him.”
Juan José Campanella
