Well, first of all my influences is my grandma Ethel Begay. She's always been there for me through thick and thin. And I can't forget my wonderful parents. And all our Masani's and our Cheii's they are the reason we still have our tradition and culture to this very day. I would like to thank each and every one of our grandparents who have put up with us young generation trying to teach us.
