When I began to search and think about an African-American that has inspired me, my mother is the first person that comes to mind. My mother has been the biggest inspiration in my life. Everything that I am today is a result of the influence and the life lessons that she has taught me. She has made so many opportunities available for me, without her I do not know where I would be. My mother is a very inspiring person; the reasons for this are countless. For example, when I decided to run for Student Council and I didn't think I could make it, but my mother was my biggest motivator.

Through all odds no matter what destruction life has thrown at my mother she never once admitted defeat and she has always presented herself as a strong black woman. My mother has always been there for me even when no one else was and she has sacrificed a lot to offer for me and my sister. So, I just make one silent promise to me and to my mother; that I will get my education and be the best I can be and when I reach a point where I feel like giving up I will just think about my mom and how she never gave up and. That will be the push that I will need to be that successful teacher and able to take care of my mom liked she took care of me. my mom inspires me she will always be my hero I love her
