    Exclamation " I donít represent anyone except myself"

    Hi
    I need to translate this item from English into another language. "All in all, I don’t represent anyone except myself." it is supposed to be an autonomy item. But I do not get the meaning actually. the problem is in "represent anyone except myself". can you please reword, rephrase, or interpret this part for me so that I can find an equivalent in the target language?

    many thanks,
    Mohsen.

    "All things considered, the only person that I represent is myself."

    or simply,

    "I only represent myself"

    I think he is saying he is speaking and acting for himself as a private individual, not as a representative of any group, organization or company.
