Who is your SHero? There are no second thoughts for CW student Tariana Torres. That title definitely belongs to her mom.

“My SHero is my mom Maria Torres, she is always there when I need her. No matter if she is busy or not or even tired, she is available for me. She pushes me to be my very best. She cares for everyone she meets. She is truly just a loving person. I always hope to be half the woman she is.”
