My parents have been a big inspiration to me. When I was younger I had terrible issues with depression and suicidal thoughts. Even though I went through some very hard times where most people would have given up on me, my parents stuck by my side.
When things finally starting getting better they encouraged me to follow my dreams. They have encouraged and supported me as I have gone back to school to get a second bachelor’s degree and to get my teaching license. They have encouraged me and helped me to not give up. They have always stuck by me and told me I can reach my dreams.
