He used his earnings from developing app to pay off his parents mortgage
Joseph Riquelme gave his immigrant parents the best gift of their lives.
The young Latino used the earnings he made as an app developer to pay off his parents' mortgage.
Joseph and his family were opening presents on Christmas morning when he handed his mom an envelope, his present to both his parents.
"This must be a special present," his mom says as she opens the envelope in the video above.
Inside, she finds a bank receipt and a note from Joseph reading, "Your house is paid off. Merry Xmas. - Joe."
Overcome and unable to speak, she hands the note to her husband. Soon, the entire family is sobbing, tears of joy and pride.
There is no better example of why we hustle, to be able to provide for those who have sacrificed everything for us. Nothing is more important than family.
Joe's app is called Videoshop, you can download it HERE.
