I would like to thank my father for helping me understand what I was and am capable of, for giving me the strength I needed to follow my dreams, and for believing that I have the skills and potential to achieve my goals. There were moments when I gave up; it was only you who walked with me to provide me with the support that I needed. I still recall my childhood when, after returning from school, you spent countless hours helping me learn mathematics, the one subject that always terrified me. You showed me how to solve the sums so quickly. At that time, I didn't know that you would also play the same role for the emotional aspects too, today when I feel discouraged; you show me how to easily fix my problems and if any problem continues, you give me your shoulder to rest upon. You are the most important pillar of my life and my greatest strength.
