She says:

It would be selfish of me to not pass what was given to me on to others.
My father always told me "If you follow your passion you'll never work a day in your life." My mother showed me how to treat people and my brother showed me ultimate strength.  I am honored that I was blessed with such a great family, mentors, and friends. They show me infinite possibility everyday. It would be selfish of me to not pass what was given to me on to others.
