"My parents are my personal heroes. They are my inspiration, pillars of strength and loyal supporters. My parents have encouraged me to reach for the stars and to achieve any task to the best of my ability. They have made many sacrifices in order to provide my sister and I with numerous opportunities. Every day, I am reminded of the importance of being humble, respectful, and grateful for our gifts and talents."
