Every summer vacation since I have been in high school I have always went to visit my Aunt Cindi in California. My Aunt Cindi is different in a way that is not your typical 56 year old lady for the fact that she is on every social media possible. She likes to be on every social media because it helps her to connect with her students that she is currently teaching or has taught. Social media not only helps her to connect with her students but it also helps her to keep in connected with me on a daily bases.
Almost everyone possesses something that they do well or excel in. Something that they do so well, they basically have become the expert of it. A majority of the time, expertise requires doing what you love to reach the expert level. For me, I have learned how to be an expert at being an aunt to my niece, Ellise. Since Ellise was born, I have learned how to excel at being an aunt.
I had always adored being in the classroom with her and trying to learn what she was teaching her classes, although they were much higher above my learning level. I had gone to the school with her for a couple years up until the time she had retired. This was an important aspect of my life because as I got older, English was always my strong point in school. Having her teach me how to read and write helped me become advanced in my English classes. I had always gotten high grades in all of my English courses or I was always put in the higher level reading groups at school. My grandmother really helped me establish a broad range of vocabulary; with this I was able to write quite well even as a young child in my younger
In many ways, my grandma is a stereotypical old granny. She loves to watch game shows on TV, she yells at you for not eating enough, and she constantly needs help with technology. Beneath her rough, wrinkled exterior lies an equally tough spirit. She has faced numerous challenges to get where she is today. Along the way she learned lessons that she passed down to her daughter, who then passed them down to me. My grandma taught me to work hard, to be persistent, and to treat others the way you want to be treated.
She taught us how to pray. My grandmother had 13 children and my mother is her second to last child with a different father from her other children. My mother’s father (grandfather) had seven children. With this large family, I have lots of aunts, uncles, grand aunts, grand uncles, and countless numbers of cousins from different generations. Some of us are very close and know each other while some of us are distant and doesn’t communicate. We used to go to the country in the summer and on Easter break to spend time with my family on my mom’s father side of the family. My childhood experiences have taught me a lot about family. The experience of living in the same yard has taught me to stick with my family no matter what. Even though food and clothes were scarce, my family would share with each other and if one person has food, then we all would eat. We learned to utilize and appreciate the little we did have. Things weren’t as civilized in my neighborhood, but I learned to appreciate the smallest things and be grateful for what we did have.
She works hard to homeless pets homes. She has found over 100 homeless cats and dogs loving homes.She is also cleaning the streets of stray cats and dogs.Not only is she helping the animals she is also helping the community.
She meant the absolute world to me, she still does. I miss everything about her. She inspired me so much. She was such a strong person, I loved how she ALWAYS stood up for what she believed in. Her family was her number one priority. Her and I, we were close. I love her so much. I have so many great memories with her. My favorite memory with her is when, it was her birthday, she came to stay a few nights with us, and it was my grandma, Jace, who was a newborn at the time, and I at our
Whether it's trying strange food like quail eggs, searching for bargains at flea markets, or singing Broadway songs at the top of our lungs, my aunt, Lisa Vogel, and I have enjoyed many unique experiences together and developed a very close relationship. Lisa lives close to Minneapolis and she is a teacher at a special needs program for students after high school. She is very involved in theatre, loves to sing, is involved at her church, is a great cook (and hey, I definitely benefit from her marvelous fettuccini alfredo), enjoys craft projects, and especially loves her nieces and nephews and her dog Lulu Cupcake. Lisa is so important to me because of the inspiration she gives me, her caring and loving nature, and the experiences we've had
Grandma Alice was born on March 1, 1919 in Winnsboro, South Carolina. She was the oldest of five children. After she completed the 6th grade, she went to work, picking cotton. It was hot in the fields. She picked prickly, cotton at the tender age of eleven up until she turned sixteen, the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 excluded agriculture. At sixteen, she became a nannie for a wealthy, white family. Grandma would go on to raise her five children. She made sure that they would enlist in the armed services and/or went to college. She was determined that education was the key to her children’s freedom and independence. Grandma Alice did not experience a lot of freedom and she was denied a good education. I can still hear her say, “…go to
Broken bones are not painful at all. Pain is Physical suffering or discomfort by illness or injury. In fact, I broken a bone years ago eight to be exact. Fear of hospitals, ghost stories and the anxiety of being alone, broken bones are not painful at all.
Growing up in a family were education is one of the most important accomplishment that we can have in our lives, I can name a lot of people that used education to attain upward mobility. However, the number one person whom I believed made in impact to a lot of people is my Auntie Yolanda Abaca. She was a Nurse, a mother not just to her kids, but also to all of her extended family member, a financial advisor, and now as a CEO of a non-profit organization that helped unfortunate children overseas that has cleft palate.
You may think of a hero as a benevolent person with superhuman powers that can stop evil, and save the day. Well in my book a hero is someone who can make the world a better place. Someone who is brave, kind, and noble. Someone like my grandma Ona. She's always been there for me whether it's something simple like showing me how to drive her tractor or feed the ravenous, noisy chickens, to something important like always saying please and thank you, and working hard to do great things, but always staying humble. She's an excellent joker with the funniest stories and always knows what to say or do to make the situation humorous and memorable. A life without her would be like never being able to use the internet. You'd probably go insane. Right? Well that's how I'd feel without my grandma. I'd probably go crazy without her. That's why I'm choosing her to be my Michigan hero.
