Good Essays
Everyone needs to be inspired and having others inspire you can only have positive effects. Its one of life's win win things. By acting in ways that inspire others we ourselves benefit, as we are giving rather than receiving. Also, those we inspire benefit and hopefully go on to inspire others in turn. It can only be good thing for society as a whole when we are inspired by others and are ourselves an inspiration to ohers.
So who has inspired me? Well, as a young person there were many people who inspired me. I didn't have a particularly easy childhood, as I grew up in relative poverty and my parents divorced when I was aged 8, after a traumatic marriage. Still, I managed to developed a fairly positive, life is a "glass half full" attitude, due in the main to positive people who inspired me.
Some of them were family members, who managed to be positive in the face of adversities, such as health problems, bereavement and life's disappointments. Others were teachers, always an important source of inspiration. My teachers managed to inspire me to believe in myself and that I could achieve as long as I worked hard to maximise my God-given abilities and life's opportunities.
I remember one teacher in particular who inspired me, Mr Mann, who was our Technical Drawing tutor. He was a tough disciplinarian, but always fair and had a sense of humour too. He always had time if you were struggling with your work or grasping a concept. He never raised his voice and managed to remain calm whatever the situation. He was one of the few teachers I ever went back to visit long after I left school.
Another teacher who inspired me was my English teacher, who invested time encouraging me to write. She would read my short stories and give me feedback that helped me develop my creative ideas. She introduced me to Shakespeare, the Black Panthers, Rev. Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights movement too.
After I left school I have been inspired by various people over the years,

    The person that inspires me most is my mom. The reason I say this is because she’s a strong black woman and she stands independently facing all odds. She inspires me to be the best I can be and to always give my all in whatever I’m doing. Whenever I need something, all I have to do is ask and I know if it’s possible, she’ll provide it. It’s always been like that with her and not with just me, but all of my brothers. I think the reason we may act uncivilized when dealing with authority is because…

Although I am not a red, and instead I am a blue, I truly agree that blue describes me the most due to that now; I am more matured about my decisions. When I was a little girl, at the age of 4 or 5, I have always been influenced of my father’s steps in life. He is a man who loves the sportsmanship and is strongly a red color person.
