* Who is your personal hero and why?
"My personal hero is definitely my dad. Even though he had a rough childhood, if any at all, he has been a great dad and friend. He is always thinking about and helping other people, and will go to any extent to do so. My dad has taught me to have a humble servant's heart because 'those who are the least will be called great in heaven.' His life has truly been a testimony of the incredible grace of God."
