College Essay

The most influential person in my life is my mom. She has inspired me to strive for the best in life through her perseverance, strength and how she continues to do what she needs to do even with the challenges she faces daily. My mom and I faced numerous challenges since I was born. She had to stop her college education just to get a job and take care of me. Since then while I’m old enough to take care of myself she has been going back to school to finish her degree and going too work at the same time. With that determination alone she has showed me how to never give up on your dreams and continue too take care of business if I want to be successful in life. She has showed me how the saying, “ its not where you come from but where you are going matters ” more than anything and how staying on a strong foundation with god can continue to lead me on the righteous path. Just by writing this story inspires me more an more to achieve my dreams and do whatever it is I want to do. “I know I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”, a bible phrase my mom used to have me repeat myself ten times before going to bed. That phrase catches my attention every time just because I’ve seen her do things that most people aren’t even strong enough to do. That’s another characteristic that draws me to the conclusion that she my inspiration. Her strength as a black woman keeps her fighting and fighting everyday because she knows if she fails and quits now, she would be giving up/quitting on her only child and no mother I mean no mother could have that there on their conscious. In my final conclusion I wonder where would I be if I didn’t have such a great and wonderful mother in my life, sure we have are fights and fusses but who doesn’t? Nobody is perfect we can only try to do the right thing.
