First I would like to thank everyone for considering me for this amazing award. The MAPS Award has changed my life. This award means so much to me and my family. This program shows that mariners are not alone, and that we have wonderful people like The Young Firm that care about us. The Young Firm changed our lives with these awards cause us mariners go through a lot being away from our families a lot. And once we receive one of your awards it make me feel so uplifted. Great feeling. The Young Firm really came up with an amazing program. I have been on the water for years and this is the best program I have ever been part of. I really have good impression for The Young Firm – this award makes me never wanna give up on things, and I never will give up. The Young Firm really let us mariners know all the hard work we put in, and I thank you for that.
