“I finished school, and then my husband and I decided to come to the U.S. when I was 26 years old. When people heard what we were doing, they would ask, ‘Aren’t you afraid to move to a new world?’ but I wasn’t. My dad taught me to be strong, to work for what I want, to be humble, and to be brave. He taught me that nothing is impossible and that God is with me. The way he raised me gave me confidence.
“I earned a Bachelor of Business Admin degree in Finance from the University of Memphis and work as a Financial Analyst. My brothers have done well too. My dad played a big part in making us who we are today, and I appreciate what he did now, but it took a long time for me to see it.”
