"A wise advisor is like a kind mother, she listens patiently to you,
like a
father, who will walk beside you through the trials and
tribulations of life, like a teacher, who encourages you to
empower yourself and take responsibility for your actions,
like a caregiver, cool and calm in times of chaos..."
