Wow.

My dad. He taught me to demand nothing less than my best.

My mom. She taught me how to read people and communicate.

My dad's sister. She taught me to pursue academics.

And myself. I model every day. I am my best every day.

MY GRANDMOTHER

 My grandmother, my aunts and my sister were very strong role models. My grandmother had 5 young children when her husband  was murdered in front of their 12 year old son. He was mistaken for his brother, the sherriff, by a man the sheriff had previously put in prison. At that time, women didn't work outside the home. And "a lady" didn't work the fields-so in order to feed her children, she would work there before dawn and after dark. She sent her 3 daughters-my mother & aunts to teacher's college-They would each go for one year and the other two would work, then switch, so they could all get an education.  This was in the 1930's, when sending a woman to college was considered frivilous by most.  They were strong women. Inspiring role models.

 My grandmother was a positive role model for me. I also admired Princess Diana and my mom's friend who went to medical school and became a doctor despite the fact she had dyslexia and her mother AND brother died when she was a teen. She overcame a lot and kept being strong to go after her dreams.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, outside of my mom my highschool debate coach/mentor had the greatest impact shaping me into the woman that i am today. The balance of embracing femininity, and being confident and comfortable in positions of authority. 

I e-mail her all the time

My mother has always been my role model.  I have told her several times how much she means to me and more.

Some of the people that played a positive roll in my life have been: my aunt and uncle,several teachers who really showed how much they cared,and some really great friends that I knew growing up.
