Favorite quote: Sucks to suck

Favorite memory: When she was 12 and she gave the kids of a homeless family a comic book that she just bought and a bag of Cheetos because she told us if their parents can't afford a home or food for them then they really can't afford to buy them comic books and Cheetos and every kid deserve a comic book and Cheetos.

Advice to future generations: Persevere. Times will get tough and that's a part of being a grown up but never give up. Once you stop trying the possibility reaching a goal ends. But if you persevere, opportunities will turn up when the least you expect it.
