With some instruction from a mechanic, I began to learn the components of an engine motor and the engineering behind it.
I repaired my brake light, replaced my battery, and made adjustments to the power-steering hose.
Whether the challenge is naval defense or family finances or even just a flat tire on my bike before another night shift, I will be solving these problems and will always be looking to keep rolling on.
Success is triumphing over hardships -- willing yourself over anything and everything to achieve the best for yourself and your family.
My sacrifice translated to a closer bond with my siblings and deeper conversations with my parents, helping me understand the true meaning of a unified family and the valuable part I play in that.
Right then I made a commitment to my family to contribute financially in whatever way I could.
We then moved to Spain when I was six, before finally arriving in California around my thirteenth birthday.
Each change introduced countless challenges, but the hardest part of moving to America, for me, was learning English.
From its good-natured bruise-counting competitions to its culture of hard work and perseverance, ice skating provided the nurturing environment that made my other challenges worthwhile.
Knowing that each moment on the ice represented a financial sacrifice for my family, I cherished every second I got. to practice what I had learned in my few precious minutes of coaching.
