She was only 8 years old, and it is a memory that will stay with her for the rest of her life. On a bitterly cold winters morning, her father took her into the woods to chop some trees together. After what seemed like hours of chopping she finally had to sit down in order to gain some rest as she was fatigued from exhaustion. As she sat down gaining her strength back, her father looked down at her and he said 'No matter how hard it gets, you've always got more to give'. It was at that moment in which she would forever push herself, never giving up in the process.
