Throughout my life I have come across obstacles, but with my mother’s guidance, I have excelled and succeeded in many ways. My mother teaches me values that I abide by, and those values have only given me success. Having my mother as a hero makes me proud of who I am and that she is in my life to help. My mother, Trinadean Moanikeala DeCoite, is my hero.”
