* Who is your personal hero and why? "All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother," - Abraham Lincoln. "Margie Castillo, my hero, my mother. As a single parent, my mother has been able to support me in everything that I wish to pursue. Her unselfish benevolent attitude toward my education has set the foundation for future courses in college. By setting her dreams, wants and needs aside, she has managed to fabricate the possibilities and opportunities that are presented before me and my siblings, My mother's ability to be altruistic through the most difficult situations is truly awe-inspiring.
