Someone that has made an impact on my life would have to be my grandpa. If it wasn’t for my grandpa I don’t think that I would know the stuff that I know today, or even gotten as far as I am today. My grandpa plays one of the biggest roles in my life today. He’s not only my grandfather, but my dad. Growing up from day one my real father was not there for me or for my mom. So as I grew up I had to do a lot of stuff on my own rather than me doing it with my dad. That put a huge effect on my life. But once I got older and when I really needed him the most he was not there. But you know what; the one that was is my grandfather. He was there to help me with whatever I needed big time whenever I came to school. Whenever I didn’t understand what we were doing in class sometimes he could always help me understand. Then I was starting to stay at my grandparents’ house. Where then I staying there got me even closer to him. I remember when I would be outside practicing on whatever sport I was in at the time, the one that would help me out the most would have to be grandfather. If I would do something wrong that he would see, that I was doing he would help me out by telling me what I needed to change. Because really for the most part I learned, practiced, and did everything on my own. I guess by him doing that, and I having the love that I have for sports, made me develop this love and bond that I never knew you could have with someone. Of course along the way growing up I did have my ups and downs. But either way he was still always there for me. To talk to me and tell me what was right and what was wrong. For some reason though the way he would talk to me and explain things to me was just so clear, I always understood and learned from him. For my grandfather doing all he did for me I love and thank him so much. Because if it wasn’t for him I don’t think I would have gotten to where I am today. So now that I am older and looking a life a whole lot...
