Who is your role model? Why?
I'm finding it hard to pick just one since I've had different ones at different points in my life who have inspired me in many different ways to become who I am today! But the role models I've had consistently from day 1 is easy - my grandparents and my parents.
My grandparents instilled those ever so important values and morals in my parents which they've instilled into me. They taught me to always be kind, be respectful, have courage, always appreciate, be humble, have empathy for others, have compassion, always be accountable and accept responsibility, always forgive, always be myself and value myself, have faith in God, and to always love big.
They instilled such a strong work ethic in me that I still have today! But not only did they instill all of these values and morals in me, I watched them use them on a daily basis within their own lives. But the best quality that I value the most from each of them that consistently look up to each of them for - you don't have to agree with someone else's opinion but you should always be willing to listen to it. I was encouraged to put myself in another's shoes to try to understand it from their point of view. By listening, you may learn something that you otherwise wouldn't have known! In the end, you don't have to like their opinion, but you should still show respect.
Each of those morals and values I've been taught that were passed down from my grandparents to my parents, I've now passed down to my 3 girls, which are now grown. My wish is that I've inspired them and show them as much love as I received and witnessed, that they will use them in their daily life and pass them down to their children. By doing so, the legacy that started with both sets of my grandparents, will continue to live on. I can't think of a better way to honor the role models that I love and respect so dearly, than to be that very same role model for another.
And maybe, just maybe I've unknowingly inspired another...”
