This is my acceptance speech that I gave and I want to thank a few extra people here that I failed to in my speech due to time constraints and being too in my head about what to say. First, my family for giving me their blessings to move away and supporting me the whole time. That is the best gift someone can give another.. belief in their abilities and their potential. My DAD for getting me my first table saw that started me on my path to making bigger and better things along with his insights on work techniques. My MOM for all of her support of me in so many ways. My best pal TOKY photography, Kristen Cooper for my press, Stephan Blahowski at McGuire Furniture for believing in me and putting me in touch with DeSousa Hughes, my true showroom home. All the other people who have crossed my path and who have no doubt helped me to achieve in one way or the other what I have so far with so much more to come. Thank you to everyone who I have ever met and will ever meet in the future!!!
