Wafa, is my mother, not only my mother but also my best friend. I have done things in life, that may not have been the best decisions ever made but she has always been my shadow and never turned her back on me. Not only that, but she's a single mother who worked two jobs everyday so my younger brother and I could stay in a good school district. I've seen her at her worst, I don't think she knows I have. She hides it, like no other person I've ever met. To me, my mother is more than a hero she's a role model. She's everything I want to be. I want to be as strong as my mother is. I just graduated high school and she's given me things that she never had. She would give it all up for us, and I would give anything up for her. As Abraham Lincoln once said, "All that I am, I owe to my mother" and that's exactly how I feel. I love you more than anything, mom.
