* Who is your personal hero and why?
"My personal hero is my older sister Lianelyn. I've always believed that sisterhood is a bond that can never be broken. Perhaps this is why my sister has been a positive influence in my life. We're a team. We learn from each other and are each other's support system. Liane is the shoulder I can cry on and the person I can call when I need to vent, laugh or just talk. She has a good outlook on life and is wonderful. She's someone I will always look up to."
