My nana: She inspires me because she is a very strong woman. She has had cancer two times, first, breast cancer and then brain cancer. Both times she recovered. She is also an excellent cook. She always encourages me to be myself and likes to buy hair products. Whenever I dye my hair, she always says that she is jealous and wants to dye her hair just like my sister and me. She gives me good advice on cooking and baking. She is the one who taught me how to make cookies which we call Cherie Bauer cookies.
