• WHO IS YOUR PERSONAL HERO AND WHY? “My personal heroes are my parents because of their patience and perseverance in life. My parents are the most inspirational people I know. I admire and appreciate their guidance and genuine support with all my endeavors. My dad is a great provider, very resourceful and innovative. My mom is the strongest woman I know, with a limitless supply of words of wisdom and encouragement. Without a doubt, I would not be who I am today had it not been for all the support and love I have received from my parents.”
