Over the past years of my life there has always been an important person who has impacted me in many different ways. Through his hard work, determination and love for the family. He became such an important person in my life due to sacrificed he has made to provide an education for me. That person is still living today and its my father.
Through his hard work, my father has shown that nothing is impossible to achieve. When he was 2 years old, he lost his mother that forced him work. Even through managing his education he was able to work and provide food and money to his brothers. His struggles has motivated me to continue even in the hardest days, to stay up late finishing homework, to get up in the morning and go to school. He motivated me to work hard and give my best to each single thing I do.
Not only his hard work but also his determination to give us a better future, and education, impacted me to continue working hard to achieve something he wished to do. I still remember when he used to tell me, “Study, make something of yourself; I don’t want to see you doing the same thing I do”. His determination to give us a better future forced him to leave his family behind and start a new life in a new country. Knowing that he had done all of this for me, made me realize how lucky I was of having such a unique opportunity to study and make someone out of myself. This led me to change my attitude towards school, since until that moment I though school had no purpose. I had always set my mind on getting a job right after high school and just work to have a place of my own, however I realize that to become someone in life you have to be educated and go to college. My father has not only shaped me, but also has become one of the most important people in my life. He has always supported me, even when nobody believed in me, he has always been there and I always thank God because of that.
Through his hard work,...
