Kate Canela, a junior at Egg Harbor Township High School, interviews her mother, Lissette Rodriguez about her childhood in Dominican Republic and her biggest influences in life. She recalls having a happy childhood, despite having lost her father at a young age. For as long as she can remember, she always loved reading and bonded with her grandmother, her biggest influence, and her uncles over her love for it. The greatest lesson she has learned, although she is still learning, is to have determination towards any dream you want to be achieved and she wants to be remembered as a person who encourages this same idea.
