Victoria and her dad

2 of 17
One of the biggest gifts my dad has ever given me is the opportunity to travel. We've gone to many Olympic Games together and have traveled throughout Europe, Asia and Australia. But in 2005, my dad changed my life by taking me to Tanzania, East Africa. The year prior, he had completed a dream of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. In 2008, he took my sister Chelsea to Tanzania, where she had an equally powerful experience. 

By taking us to Africa, my dad has completely changed the way we think about everything. We have come to know the meaning of generosity and selflessness through my father. My Korean-American dad is 6 feet tall, handsome, drives a '59 pink Cadillac and is one of the most stylish men around, but more importantly he has a huge heart that has always had room for kids.
