I want to thank my mom and dad because they have sacrificed everything to give me and my brother a better chance at having a better life. They moved us all halfway across the world, away from all of our family so that we could have a better and safer life, even though it meant giving up their lifetime of work and their home. They are the two most selfless people I know and I don’t say that just because they’re my parents but because they go out of their way to help people. My dad has taught me that no matter how hard life can get that you have to keep going, he went through that hard time when we first moved, we had nothing. He kept going though and built this family up to where we are now and now we have our own farm. My mom taught me that their is going to be situations where people are going to disappoint you but you can never give up on anyone. My mom taught me to be caring and giving, might hurt you sometimes but that’s how you build your character. Without these two in my life I wouldn’t be who I am today. I’m so thankful to have the most caring and amazing people in my life. I want them to know how much I love and appreciate them because they went through so much struggle and pain to get us where we are now. I want to give them everything they deserve. The key to happiness is the people who stand by you and love you, the key to happiness is family and hard work. So many people take family for granted but your parents are the ones who love you unconditionally. After seeing everything my parents has done and what they do for people, I know that one day I will be extremely lucky if I was ever half the person they are. So thank you to the people who I look up to the most. Thank you to my best friends and lastly thank you for everything you’ve done for me. You’re support and dedication for me to have the best life that I can possibly live pushes me to become a better me. Thank you mom and dad I love you guys so much.
