* Who is your personal hero and why?
"My personal hero would be my mother. She has taught me so much in life and shaped me into the person that I am today. I am truly blessed by God to have such a positive role model and, most importantly, a mother who has always supported me in all of my endeavors. I could go on and on about how great of an influence she has had on me, but what I will say is that she will always be my inspiration and motivation to become successful in life."
