Values are the Root

Keira was excited to adventure into independence. She grew up with three older brothers and longed for female companionship.

Keira’s parents were apprehensive when she applied for university across the country, they didn’t want their little girl to be without protection.

Despite the uncertainty, Keira knew she had to find herself and would always be supported by her family, no matter how far away she was.

After moving away from home, Keira freely explored the environment, made new friends with common interests, and knew her new home was where she was meant to be.

As Keira established her new home, she started a business with her friend, Layla. Despite the success of her life, Keira never forgot to contact her family. Birthdays and Christmas were always moments to reconnect and return to her childhood home.

One day, Layla said, “Wow, Keira! I really admire how you find time to vacation with your parents and brothers. Your family must be special to you.”

Keira smiled. “Yes, they are. I believe no matter the circumstances of the journey, your values are the root of your reality and I’ll never forget the love my family gave me. I always return to them to remind myself of the values I hold dear.”
