* Who is your personal hero and why?
"My personal hero would have to be my mom because she has been and will always be there for me and has brought me up to be the person that I am today. She is a person who does not leave anyone behind and will help others before helping herself. My mom has taught me to strive for my goals and to never let anyone take them away from me."
