The first to come to mind when I am asked that question is my mom. She is an inspiration in my life because she puts 100% into everything she does. This is her 23rd year teaching elementary kids and she wakes up every day with so much drive. She strives to make a big difference in every one of her students’ lives. Not only does she work so hard at work but she comes home to my autistic brother and husband and no matter the day she has, puts the most delicious meal on the table. Nothing brings her down, ever. She loves with all of her heart and can make your worst day, your best. She gives and she gives all she has. She manages to give to me when she has nothing to give. I try to be more like my mom every day and hope that one day I can look back and see that I have made the same impact on people just as my mom has.

I think I inspire some of my friends (at least I hope) I try to be the best christian every day. I try to be nice to people even if they don’t deserve it (to a fault). I aim to inspire people to treat others as Jesus does, without judgement. I pride myself on my ability to talk to strangers (Got it from my mom~ she can make friends with a wall). Shyness was something I overgrew very young and I am so thankful for that. Seems like I’ve chosen the right major! 🙂
