Ernest was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease at a young age, causing him pain and difficulty in performing everyday tasks. Despite the challenges, he refused to let the condition define him and started to find himself again through fitness and nutrition. With a newfound passion for the gym, Ernest can now bench press almost twice his weight.


He hopes to inspire others through his journey and advocate for never giving up, in line with Mr World 2023’s tagline, “always doing better”. Ernest is a self-described “nerd” who spends most of his time studying, and he sees this platform as a way to spread awareness and motivate others.

He ends with a quote from his favourite book, The Master and Margarita, which reminds him that our ideas, creativity, and passion are enduring and cannot be destroyed.
