Automatic TRANSCRIPT

The really I love her so much. She has just this really, really great energy. And recently, you know, she's one of the stars on dancing with the stars. Not not normally. I don't watch the show, but I do watch it for her because I really like her. But we've got to send her some well wishes get a really, really scary situation. This one I feel like people should hear about because this could potentially happen to them in some sort of way.

This was her talking about what it actually really meant to her. My parents came here to build an American dream. And I feel like I'm living that dream right now. Maybe on dance with stars is a way for me to express my gratitude to make them proud. And to show me that I could do it. She taught that in Will my parents.
