My grandma and grandpa have been just simply amazing in my life. They have basically been a second set of parents. I’ve lived with them since I was born. My mom also lived in the same house with us.

I love her to death, she has always been there for me no matter what. To this day I still mess with her as if she is my best friend. I love them both so much. Two of my aunts have had a tremendous impact on my life. One of their names is Jackie Morales. My grandfather has been the father figure in my life since my father has not. I owe a lot to him for that. My family is full of people that ill never be able to repay. For my aunt Jackie, who is also my godmother, I was like her first kid. She loved me as if I was. To me, she was like a second mom. Over the years she bought me things and taught me things. Life lessons that only she would know from experience. She says I helped her prepare for her own little one. The other one is Evelyn Turton. She is a travel agent with an office in Vermillion. She made it possible for me to go to Disney World multiple times, the Disney Cruise once, and Disneyland. Not only did she provide trips, but helped me make connections. That means more than anything. She’s the one who basically taught me to go out in the world
