“For the last 20 years, my uncle has kept the same job. He wakes up every morning just to go to work at 5:00 in the morning without complaining.

We did barbeque near the beach with both family and friends.” “My uncle is also quite empathetic and he helps people in different ways. He’s taught me the importance of contributing to the community and to even take part in various public forums and he’s ready to assist the homeless or less fortunate.”

So, even though I was sad and devastated, I know that his spirit would walk with me even as I went to college.” “I know that I’ll face many challenges especially in college, but I know by applying the different lessons from my coach, I’ll overcome any obstacle.
