This decision was hard for me to make , since I was born , raised and had lived my whole life in Cambodia and did not want to leave for several reasons, school, my friends and memories. One day she sat down with me and told me how important it is to have trust in myself with everything that I do , not to be afraid of making wrong choice or decisions. She said no matter which way I will choose , she will always be there for me. I started crying and hugged. she gave me the choices of living to United States ; no mother would ever give that opportunity to her own son by knowing that she might not see her son or a long time.
She gave me the choices to make, but I decided to leave. Just because of her ideas, continue learning from her, and hopefully someday being like her. This drive my life being independent and know how to face to the future. After, I have been living in United States for 5 years. I always think of her face and speeches when she said to me, I knew what she was expecting me to do for my life even it is going to be hard .

It is also gives strength characteristic and opinion to the future. Her ideas has changed my life from the bottom to the top. I know that my mom will be proud of me and will always stay with me .
