”My dad was like my best friend; I was very close to him. He literally dragged me and said, ‘you aren’t going anywhere,” she said.

“So, when he passed away, I was like, ‘what am I going to do with life?’. I didn’t accept it until months after he was buried, I was in denial. I fell into depression.”
“When I finally got out of it, I told myself, ‘this isn’t what your dad would have wanted you to be, he would have wanted you to be a great woman, so go do something.”
