"I saw where my parents were and the mistakes they made with their life."  "I wanted to be able to make my family better. I wanted to be the person my siblings could look up to, because they had no one else to look up to."

"My whole thought process through all my education – middle school, high school, college – was always a part of that. I never wasn’t thinking about how excited I was to go to college, to be able to get a degree, to be able to be on my own, to be something better than what was put in front of me in the first place."
