When i asked him how did his daily lifestyle get affected by college he said,” I didn’t have my mother pushing me to do my best; I had to get accustomed to motivating myself when no one else was around.” Since he knew that there was no one to push him he had to work hard everyday by himself.

I can still remember like it was yesterday the day my son was born. The feelings leading up to the day he was born were the most nerve racking days of my life.
