This student is a 22-year-old woman. She tells of what is the best moment in her life despite her circumstances.

Despite the good and the bad, she was able to make her way through life at an early age. When she finished high school, one of her goals was to study and grow on both a personal and professional level. However, she fell in love and decided to postpone her studies so that she could become a mother. Her parents did not think this was a good idea since they did not want to see one of their grown daughters spend her future as a mother without becoming a professional as they had envisioned. However, they respected her decision and supported her in the process of becoming a mother. She continued to hold on to the dream of becoming a professional so that she could move forward along with her daughter. She is currently enrolled in Graphic Arts and Advertising and will be starting her first semester this year. With great determination, she plans to accomplish all of her goals, which include earning her degree.

By taking the time to describe her experience of becoming a mother as the most beautiful thing in her life, it is clear that this is the loveliest gift that God has given her.
