“I am my father’s darling. Growing up, there has never been a day when he didn’t try his best to make me smile. So when he could no longer shoulder the responsibility of running the family on his own, I had to take it up on myself. When I first started working, the world seemed bigger than I imagined. But I learned to embrace the challenges and the satisfaction that came along with it. There’s still a long way for me to go, and I aim to keep moving forward to make my father smile.”
