Q: How did your family and culture influence who you are today? 

Family and culture helped to forge who I am today by instilling grit while also displaying gratitude towards what one already possesses. Our way of life forced individuals to develop a strong sense of independence that was vital to thrive within our community. Once you have found your passion, family members didn’t hesitate to encourage each other to pursue the endeavor.
