Over the years that I’ve been alive, I’ve had a lot of people influence me and how I live my life so obviously, it’s going to be hard to pick a single people to write about in this paper. I’ve had numerous family members, friends, schoolmates, teachers, and even college professors who have made an impact on the person that I am today.

All in all, I believe that my parents have had the biggest impact on my life for how they have raised me, how I learned to look at life. My parents have, in short, made me who I am today.
