Many people look to athletes, celebrities and historical figures to be their sources of inspiration, but my role model doesn't play for the Golden State Warriors or make millions of dollars every year.
My role model is the person who has cared for me and fed me since the day I was born -- my mom.
My mother was born in Honduras in 1966, and growing up was very difficult for her.
My grandparents had 11 kids and not enough food to go around. So my mom would often have to go for days eating a single tortilla for dinner. She lived in severe poverty for most of her childhood -- no shoes, no toys, no clothes -- but she never complained.
Instead, she prayed, and thanked God every day for the things she did have.
