I had told my mom that I had paid off her mortgage. That was something when I first started working and I was making money, I was speaking with a business manager and they said, ‘you should invest your money. What do you want to do with it?’ And I said, first thing is I want to pay off my mom’s mortgage. They said it was going to be a long time before I could afford to do that, but that’s what we worked towards. Every couple of months I’d check in, ‘do we have enough yet?’ And then eventually he was like, you can afford to pay your mom’s mortgage. We did all the paperwork and stuff and it was a big secret to be sitting on for so long. But yeah, it was definitely one of the best moments of my life. It’s like, what any kid dreams of being able to do for your parent and I feel very lucky that I actually had the opportunity to do that.
