    I feel very honoured and proud of my son Lawrence as I have watched him through the years, growing spiritually into the amazing person he is today. Even if he does not win - it makes no difference, just that he has reached the finalists. He is so humble  and deserves some sort of reward for the person he has become. Baruch Hashem.

     I am most proud and feel honoured to know that my son Lawrence has become amongst the top achievers. To have watched his growth, academically and spiritually has been a tremendous reward for me. As  his mother he is   my winner. Baruch Hashem.
