“Raising three daughters is a hassle – is what my father had to listen to for as long as I can remember. But he always dismissed it with a smile. He has worked hard all his life, running a family of five is not easy when you did not come from a lot of money. Yet, not once have I seen his smile waver when looking at me and my sisters. And I knew I wanted to take some of the weight off his shoulders. I started working to support my family, to not ask my father for money when he already had so much to worry about. But most importantly, I do it to see my father’s smile when I buy him something with my own money. Now, his smiles are way brighter because they come with pride in his daughter.”
