* Who is your personal hero and why?
"My personal heroes are my parents. Since I was born, my parents have always been there to support, especially my dad. He would always take me to my golf tournaments on the Mainland or Neighbor Islands. They have always supported me with golf and school. My mom would constantly tell me to never give up and always do my best in whatever I do. Without my parents' love and support, I would not be the person I am today. Thanks, Mom and Dad!"
