 September 2000 Contest Entry
Role Models

My role model is Alicia Julian, from Millbrook. She is a very nice person and knows how to comfort people. She believes in God and Jesus so much it surprises me because sheís only fifteen years old. I respect her so much that I donít swear, or do anything bad in front of her because she thinks itís wrong. When I was so scared and had no one to talk to, even though she didnít know me very well she helped me to remember God. First, when she told me to pray I was getting mad and telling her it wouldnít be enough, but she made me see that was all I needed. After we finished praying I felt like everything was going to be okay and that God still loved me and never stop loving me and never will. Even though we were on the phone she told me that God knows no distance. She sounds so wise for someone so young, but I thank her for being there and for helping me out when I needed it the most. She is a young, positive role model who will be a wonderful leader for our people.
