Best compliment ever received: The best compliment I have ever received is a most recent occurrence when girls tell me I inspire them. It means so much to me and I feel so honored that I'm a role model to girls within my age group.  It reassures me that I am making an impact on the people around me  and am an inspiration to these young ladies.   

Most valued role model, and why: My grandmother is my role model and the one I look up to for so many reasons.  She raised me since I was six weeks old during the weakest point of her life when she was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer and enduring Chemotherapy and radiation.  She is a hero in my eyes and has taught me to never give up.   She is a 16 year survivor.  By never giving up, she is here with me today.  I believe that is amazing! She is my role model in so many ways and I love her for that.
