 September 2000 Contest Entry
Role Models

My role model is my mother. Why I say that my mother is my role model because she was the one who brought me into this world. She was the one who took care of me, my mom was there when I got sick or when I got hurt. She was there to give me love and care, when I needed it. My mother was this strong person who can do anything. She taught me right from wrong, but most of all she taught me how to be honest. My mom is also my best friend because when I am feeling sad and down, she is always there to bring me back up and make me feel good. That is why I said that my mom was my role model in my life. The way my mom influenced me is to be kind and caring to other people and to have self confidence in what I do. She also influenced me by letting me know that having a good education in life is the best thing to do. These things I said about my mom in my essay, is what makes her my role model.
