A former youth minister, Jaeson shares the profound impact of his missionary work on his worldview and values. Stressing the importance of creating meaningful relationships and the power of forgiveness, he talks about his transition to the music industry and collaboration with Bruno Mars following his burnout.

He concludes by re-defining success and underscoring that our true destiny flows from our identity, which is grounded in the unconditional love of God.
