    Who had the biggest impact on your life?

    My mom. She basically was a single mom since I was three. She’s not afraid to back down from any challenge. She does what’s right and lives by that. She always keeps her composure. She’s struggled a lot but you’d never know that if you met her. Through everything she always encourages others.
