I know the value of hard work. Coming from a working class family, I have watched how my parents render services to their sources of income, dedicatedly. Take my mom as an example. She is a college instructor. When I was a young boy, I noticed after coming home from school, she’d automatically change to a more relaxed outfit, and would do home chores immediately. After dinner, she’d be tending to her job-related homework; reading books, making lesson plans, checking papers, among others. So, early in life, I was exposed to the principle: hard work brings rewards.
