She always reminds us about the importance of education and knowledge. She always said “you will not get anywhere without hard work”. For example, when I was five years old my mom showed me a person who was cleaning streets, and a person who was rich. She said if you want to clean streets you don’t have to go to school, but if you want to be successful and have money go to school and work hard. She has shown me to stand on my own two feet and not be dependent of anyone for the success or failure in my life.
