About freedom.
REPORTED BY Jose Miguel de Abreu, 11, March 2014

“The thing is with my business and Pauline, it was never meeting around a table saying we’ve got to have a business. I was just a shop assistant and then she said, ‘ Oh, you’ve got a lot of ideas, why don’t you try and open a shop?’ So we opened a little shop and then we still did other jobs to support it, so it’s just been this gentle life that has just always progressed a bit. I think freedom is probably the most privileged thing I’ve got because if I want to do anything I don’t have to ask nobody, because I am the main shareholder. So I suppose the main emotions I feel are freedom, privilege and happiness. I’m definitely happy. I mean amazingly happy – every day.”
