Biggest Influence

No other person has influenced my life more than my late parents. Both demonstrated their sacrificial love for my siblings and me to get out of poverty through good education. They taught us about giving first to bless others, and this is what I have learned in POP. Good values like honesty, hard work, and love inculcated in us since our childhood days grant us peace in our relationships with others and also deep within our hearts.
