I go to trade shows. People will say, “Oh, I’m sorry. Oh, it’s nothing. But you speak so well. I love you.” They said, “You’re very talented, smart business woman.” I said, “No, not that.” But, I work hard. I’m fighter. Don’t give up.

I really thank my parents. Took me to parties, Sunday school and charity work. All the things – all different It’s amazing. I really thank my parents – it’s a big gift from my parents.
