It is a kid like me that grew up working in tobacco fields and mowing

grass to help pay rent. First kid on either side of family to make it to college and ended up with a master's and am now a 5%er. It's a story repeated again and again. And absolutely it is something to brag about - my parents and my university helping me be something I would not have been without them.
