Everybody knows how charitable Mr. Patrick Shin is but the real worth of his humble nature has to be in the eyes of his children. It is important that his young ones acknowledge his good deeds rather than the whole Hawaii. And, luckily the Hawaii General Contractor, Patrick Shin has the modest daughters, who are very sober and decent girls. His daughter Sherry Shin has inherited most of her generous qualities from her father and is always thankful for what he has done for her and for entire Hawaii. Being well aware of the harsh childhood of his father, she feels proud of him being a top Hawaii General Contractor and the Nan Inc Owner.
When Sherry Shin got the chance to work for one of the charitable foundations, she was really moved by a kind of experience she had there. This made her even more humble and grateful for the quality of life she was living, which eventually made her more gracious and courteous towards her father’s charitable nature. Today, she feels contented and highly gratified that her father Patrick Shin sent her to work on a service project in Cambodia. According to her, without this experience, she would not have learned to value the little things in her life.
As a daughter of Nan Inc Owner, Patrick Shin Sherry Shin has enjoyed every luxury and used the best of things in her life. But when she was sent to work for a charitable foundation, which was sponsored by his father Patrick Nan Shin and the Rotary Club of Honolulu, she got to know how blessed she is to have born to this Hawaii General Contractor. She writes that not all wealthy businessmen send their children to serve the needy communities of other countries but she is thankful that her father, Patrick Shin did this otherwise she would not have known the harsh realities of the world.
In her letter, she has written about the eye-opening experiences, which previously she had only read about.

All this reminded her of Patrick Nan Shin’s childhood that even her father has seen such days. He also grew up in similar circumstances. It is her father’s initial hard work only that has taken him to this level today and this is what has made him so humble and generous towards people experiencing the same life as he did.
She is pleased that her father Patrick Nan Shin gave her the chance to know these people more closely, which proved a lifetime experience for her. Today, she feels fortunate that she has got the best childhood and is also happy that she learned a valuable lesson from this project that has made her gentle like her father.
