“Thank you to my mom and my dad for telling me to dream big and to never stop dreaming. To my siblings, my sisters Ivelisse and Rebecca, for being the biggest role models in my life,” Gina shared on the verge of tears.
She continued, “This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes. My father used to tell me to say every morning that today is going to be a great day. I can and I will. Well, Dad, today’s a great day. I can and I did.”
