Personal Tags: Reshma mum died cancer Dec2010
My mother is my angel...she died after a short battle with cancer in Dec2010. Becoming a single parent 11 years ago after my father died in Kenya, she struggled against societal notions that women arent strong enough and made sure she educated me and my sister. She would sometimes skip on buying herself new clothes just so we could go out with our friends - she never wanted us to feel like we were poor or left out. She struggled to make sure that we went to university and got degrees at the first class. Today she is physically gone, but her spirit remains...she always wanted us to help those less fortunate, and reminded us to be grateful for what we have....today, I dedicate all my work to her and mothers like her around the world!
