I want to thank my mom and dad for always encouraging me to work hard for what I want in life. I am so grateful to have both parents in my life who continue to love me unconditionally through my, as they like to call "bad choices" and supporting me through the "good choices" I have made as well.

Nothing was ever handed to you guys which is for me a constant reminder of how hard I have to work in order to achieve my goals and what I want out of my life.
Growing up I began to learn what true sacrifice is, having to spend weekends and some weekdays without you because you both would be at work. Even though i missed out on having you both around on the weekends you both made up for it by always making sure there was food on the table and spending quality time when it was available to you both on the weekdays.

Thank you, mom and dad, for teaching me how to be selfless and loving to not only my siblings but everyone I encounter, for teaching me to be respectful to my peers and educators throughout my academic years. I am so confident in the young woman I am becoming, and because of your never ending support and love I know I can achieve anything.
