“Whenever my dad was asked about me, he would say, ‘she could cure cancer if that’s what she wanted to do.’ My parents’ constant support and confidence in me inspired me to work hard. Not only this, but I have always strived to be a good role model for my sister and to lead by example. Overall, I would not have done so well without the support of my family and the drive to be a good role model. ”
