I have not enough words to express how grateful I am for being your daughter. I can't even imagine how did you manage to raise 4 girls in this world but I really want to thank you for the way you did it. Thanks to you I am where I am, and I have achieved everything I always wanted because you are right beside me, you have always been my anchor and my most valuable support.
I have to thank you for the countless nights and days you took care of me and my sisters when we were little, all the hours you expended teaching us new things and cultivating in us the hunger for knowledge and adventure.
Thanks to you I'm already an engineer. I know it was hard to pay for it with our home monthly income, but thanks to you I got my scholarship and I promise I will pay for my loan. Because as you once told me, your education is the most valuable inheritance that we can leave you. And in fact, it is.
Now that I pursuing my Master's degree and I look back in time and remember how you support me without having any type of prejudice against the field of study I choosed, even though it is mostly studied by men, thank you for helping me fight against all the gender stereotypes we have in Mexico.

I wish you could be here with me, but even though you are far away, back home, I feel you closer than ever.

Thank you for believing in me even when I didn't believe in myself.
Thank you to push me when I was feeling down and desperate.
Thank you for always remind me where I come from and where I'm heading to.
Thank you for raising me humble.
Thank you for being the most valuable treasure I have.
I promise I will pay you back everything you have done for me and my sisters.
I miss you more than ever. Hope I see you and hug you soon.
