I'd like to thank my mom & dad because they've supported me through innumerable academic and personal challenges with an unwavering grace and wit that I aspire to carry into my adult life. I'm taking this opportunity to thank my parents for making my world one of compassion, empathy, patience and understanding; the environment that my parents have built for me has allowed me to grow, learn and prosper at my own pace and in my own way. As such, I've been fortunate enough to experience my parents' pride at any academic achievements of mine (no matter the weight) and honour it with my admission to the post-secondary institution of my choice. I'd like to thank my parents for respecting my path of study (and not ridiculing the Arts degree toward which I'm working) and always contributing to the historical, political and philosophical topics of discourse that I bring from school to the dinner table. Finally, I'd like to thank my parents for making the last eighteen years of my life as comfortable and filled with love and support as they have been - my achievements come from theirs alone.
