My parents try to make my life the best it can be, and I can’t thank them enough for that. whenever I need them I know I can talk to them about anything and everything. Family may be something so simple but it can also have a very great impact on your life, especially mine.

For example, when I was younger I remember being friends with everyone, but now I only have a select number of friends. This represents values to me. My values inform my actions by them always being my first thought while making a decision. They always play a role in my…
