Believing in yourself can make your dreams come true. Its been many years, lots of trials and tribulations, but I am living my dream. Part of that dream success came from believing in my parents who always said to me "keep trying, don't give up and never stop believing in yourself".
Thanks mom and dad for the faith you've had in me all these years to do my very best.
