My biggest inspiration would have to be my parents. In life you have different eras that you go through and having made it through those transitions, you learn how to stay humble. My parents helped me find a sense of ease, regardless of whether those times would be challenging. They never gave up, which has given me Strength and Courage to be who I am today. Strong!
