Words to Live By

"....there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." -Winnie The Pooh

This quote has always been my favorite. When I first saw this quote it was on the wall of my best friend's bathroom and it really inspired me to do my best in life.

My Role Model

                     There are many role models in my life, including my Grandma, Grandpa, Mother, and Brother. Although all of these people have a large impact on my life, they all have a different purpose. My Grandma has taught me to always do my best ever since I was younger. She has been a teacher, therefore she has had an influence on my interest in being an English teacher. My Grandma has taught me to read and write. Ever since I was younger I have read many books, wrote many papers, and competed many projects with her help when I needed it.

                           My Grandpa and Brother have helped to inspire me to have confidence and play sports to the best of my ability. I went to many, many, many games for my Brother and I studied the way he threw the baseball and kicked the soccer ball, etc. He always gave me tips and tricks on how to play. I always wanted to be as good at sports as him. He did get a bit jealous when I hit my first two home runs and he never got to hit one in his entire baseball career. My Grandpa always has given me confidence and helps with the mental aspect.
