Family gives me strength

Family gives me strength

“Originally my plan was to go straight to university, but high school finals kind of screwed me over because I already had an early acceptance. I decided to come to SAIT to get my diploma and planned to go to uni after that. But then, I just fell in love with SAIT ... My family had said everything happens for a reason, you'll like SAIT more and all that. It was really encouraging.

My brothers are five and eight years older, so I couldn’t really do many childish things when I was little. They made me grow up pretty quick just hanging out with them. I learned stuff quicker, I guess. My brothers have really impacted me ... And my mom as well ― a lot. I guess at the end of the day, they just always believed in me and believed that I could pretty much do anything I wanted to. My brothers and I call an angel. She’s just the best lady out there, I guess. She’s always been there, always shown me love, always believed in me and she’s the most patient lady I know. I guess she’s always been the rock in our family ― that’s the best way to put it."
