Role model: "Of the numerous people with whom I interact, my mother serves as a primary role model. All her life, she has exemplified a selfless, hard-working lifestyle, sacrificing time and various pleasures every day for the beneift of her children. In fact, she devotes time to three different jobs, including a part-time occupation with Maritz, Inc., her own photography business, and lawn-mowing with my dad, brother, and me. Along with her several monetary jobs, she also attends to the needs of my siblings and me during the week while my father works. Overall, I admire my mother's selflessness and work ethic and hope one day I can fully devote myself to the welfare of my family and children as she incessantly does."
