Her mother

Luminaria speaker Ashley Chen, sophomore, pays an emotional tribute to her late mother, who passed away in 2009 from primary peritoneal cancer. “I remember being angered when I went to parent-teacher conferences and seeing all the other kids who came with their mom and dad. I envied those classmates who told me stories of them going shopping with their mom, getting their nails done, watching movies … I recall some nights where I just couldn’t accept the way everything turned out because of her death,” she said.
