Indicate a person who has had a significant influence on you, and describe that influence.
As weird as it may sound my mother has had the most influence on me. I know that many people who find their mothers to be influential would be females, but i tend to have a different approach on this. Her hard work and determination to give me and my brother a better life than what she had, truly is influential to me. My mother is a single parent of two boys, me and my older brother.
