This is a story of struggles and triumps over adversity through hard work and resilience. It is a story of putting one foot in front of the other each day to forge a new life for yourself and your family despite all the odds. I felt very inspired by this story and it is a tribute to it's author Roxane and her courage to not give up on her dreams.
