I walk in the steps of my ancestors
They paved the way
They laid the foundation
Of who I am

When I talk I echo them
I act to honor them
With enduring spirit
That is the core of my being

I do not stand alone
I represent with pride
Steadfast in my goal
To achieve greatness

Lest I forget
Who I am
I evolve I grow
That is the essence of me
What I believe gives me strength, the power of my forefathers will live on forever, I will make sure of that.
