Congratulations Nina, Valentine’s Winner

Nina’s message: “The person I’d like to nominate for the ambassador of love would be my mother, Franciska Paulino. (She does not have facebook though.) I would say my mum because there is nothing that helps sculpt an individual more than the consistent as well as firm love that a mother gives. I believe its the purest and most beautiful love. So for the years of patience, understanding, support…
