While she loves sailing the seas and working with people from different countries, she especially loves connecting with her dad in destinations around the world. Most recently, they met for lunch in Ushuaia, a city in Argentina. Whether it’s a few hours or a full day, any time they have together is treasured beyond measure. And though they both have stories to share now, she can’t help but continue looking up to him in awe.
“Our dads are all superheroes that don’t wear capes,” she said. “It just happens that mine is wearing a chef’s toque. He’s a kind of superhero that will not get tired of providing for his family; a superhero that will definitely give up everything for their family; and a kind of superhero who is thriving every day and his family looks up to him in everything that he does. I am so lucky to say that I have my own superhero, and I call him my father.”
Though Alexa and her dad are sailing the seas and likely won’t be able to connect until next year for her sister’s graduation, she shared this special message for him: “I just want to say, Papa, that I am so proud of you and everything that you do. I know that you are passionate, and you love what you are doing. I am forever thankful that God gave you and mama as our parents – that is my greatest blessing. Happy Father’s Day, Papa!”
