"My mom has had a big influence on me. She taught me to show respect to older people, to take care of my grandparents when they were still living, to tell the truth, to work hard, and to get along with and love my three sisters. As a child, I remember her always saying that if I saw someone drop something on the ground, to pick it up and give it back to that person and not even think about keeping it for myself. She said, 'It hurts other people to lose things just as much as it hurts us.' She taught me to do good things in life."
