NOMINEE: Erlinda Malong
NOMINATED BY: Paola Malong
No matter how many times I try to revise my words to match the kind of gratitude I feel for my mom, it will never be enough. I can never thank her enough for the sacrifices she has done to make sure I get the level of education, training, character, and values I have now. I always look up to her with so much love and admiration, and I know that she is the most instrumental person to my continuous growth. Thank you, mom, for everything! To grow up to become even just half of who and how you are will be an achievement.
