The two people that have influenced my life the most are my parents. They are the ones that get to know us the best for who we really are, from our fortitudes to our imperfections. They have the greatest influence in our lives because they are the people we see the most and have known the longest. They forgo a lot of bliss in order to give their children the best possible. My parents have influenced my life and helped make me what I am today. Respect, Commitment, and moral values are just some of the principles they have implanted in me, as I grew older. But I still have a long way to go if I want to be as strong as my mother and as wise as my father. I now realize that all their actions in the past to correct my misbehavior were not pointless, but only to lead me in the right direction. My dad is a man of his word; no one can take that from him. He is a strict and overprotective man. I’ve kicked and fuzzed many nights during my teenage years because he would not allow me to go out with my friends. But he taught me how to be honest, confident and most importantly respectful to others and myself. He is a humble hardworking man who loves his family unconditionally. Education has always been a big deal for him, he has always found fun and exciting ways for me to learn whether it’s studying for a quiz or just simply doing HW. Its so extreme that one day we even went out to buy paint to write on my back yard floor to play a game he called vocabulary hopscotch. Unquestionably, I am grateful to have my father as my mentor. When I think of my Dad, I just think of unconditional love. I see it in his big brown eyes when he looks at his family, when he smiles, and when he laughs. They say I am a lot like him, both physically and mentally. Ramon Anthony Gomez is his name, when I was younger my family called me “anthonieta” because of such a resemblance. My father is this tall, Indian colored man, a bit intimidating but when you get to know him, he’s nothing but a sweetheart....
