Kelly you are the best and have shown how strong you are by doing what many people wouldn't have done. As a Muslim i feel proud that you have filled one of the commanments of the holy Quran

Afzal
God bless you Kelly for your efforts for your parents, this is pure teaching of the holy Quran.

I am a senior teacher, on my way to school. I have met many young people and I have found your experiences and desire to remain strong a tremendously uplifting one. I only hope that should you ever feel low, someone will be there for you as you have so clearly been for the precious people in your family. you are an angel.

Margaret
Kelly, I really appreciate your devoted heart to your sister. Although I can't undestand all you said, because I am Chinese. I know that all you said is from the bottom of your heart.

Em
You must have many difficult times, but from your video it is clear you have a very loving heart. You must be an inspiration to everyone who knows you! Thank you, Kelly.

Ian Daily
Kelly, you deserve the very best in life. I pray that all your dreams come true, take good care of yourself.

Venus
Kelly is a great girl, there is no doubt! I'm a college student in China. In my opinion, I thought that only in poor countries, such as China, there is the possibility of this kind of touching story. However I must respect Kelly, a courageous girl! Best wishes for her!!
