Who is your personal hero and why?
"My personal heroes are my parents. Born into lives of hardship, their perseverance has shown me that hard work and determination will always be a necessity in life. As their lives changed for the better, the humility and generosity they have demonstrated were limitless. Through their character, I have learned and imitated their decision-making abilities, values and beliefs. With utmost respect, I am deeply thankful for their countless sacrifices and endless love."
