"When I started art school in Memphis, my mom drove me up and dropped me off. It was really emotional because she has a heart condition and I worry about her. I made her go get the neighbors' phone numbers so I could check on her if she didn't answer when I call. I don't know what I'd do if something happened to her. She's my best friend. She's always done everything to give me the world, especially after I was diagnosed with learning disabilities. Because of her, my life has been positive and I've had a lot of good experiences. That doesn't always happen with people in similar situations. She's worked hard to give me what I need."
