With so many of my cherished moments in life centred around family and sharing memories together, I have come to realize the significant and positive impact having a strong family can have on one’s life. It brings me so much joy to see how I can help create that positive impact for a family. At the end of the day, it’s not about the achievements I make for myself, but what I am able to do for others that brings me such fulfilment.
