I want to dedicate this book to everyone who helped me make it a reality. To my family who has endorsed my decision from the very beginning. To my parents, for loving and supporting me through many hardships in my extraordinary journey. To my little sister, Emi, who knew before everyone else did and who has been even more excited for this book than I ever was. Surely, to the rest of my relatives, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents whom I wish to make proud with this book. To my friends with whom I created the experiences that I have written about. To those who have been there for me through everything, who has made me cry tears of joy and been a shoulder to cry on through the tears of pain. I will always be thankful and hope that our friendship will continue to be just as strong in the future. Lastly, to all my readers. Without you, this book would be worthless. You are what gives it meaning and beauty. I hope you flip through the pages with sparks in your eyes and smiles on your faces.
