* Who are your personal heroes and why?
"My personal heroes are my parents, who have worked hard to give me and my brother a great life - one full of opportunities. They have taught me important life and work ethics, and important values such as respect for myself and others, and the importance of being on time to any event. I admire and greatly appreciate the sacrifices that my mom and dad have made for me. My parents have invested much time and money to provide me with a wonderful and fulfilling life. They are the role models that I emulate; the kind of people that I strive to be. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for everything you have done, and continue to do for me."
