The leader in my life is my father, as he has helped me journey through my life till this day and will continue helping me in the near future. I think to a large extent that my father has lead me to become the person that I am today, and I believe that I would not be the same person without my father’s positive thoughts and influential words he has provided me during the tough times I have experienced. My father has impacted me in many ways, for example, the morals he lives by has impacted me to keep living by the same morals. The morals he believes are mostly past down from his parents (my grandparents) and that is the reason why I will do the same in the future. I believe that my father was also greatly impacted by my grandparents
Growing up as a kid, the people I looked up to the most were my parents. As I got older I started to realize how much I started to influence my sister's and started becoming a role model to them.

Every person has on object in their life that is very precious to the, for me, it is my pearl necklace. They are small and round and a lustrous cream color with a pink sheen. They have a tiny gold clasp that holds the necklace together. My pearls tell a story than no other personal artifact can: my heritage. The pearls symbolized tradition and womanhood in my family’s life, and they were to be worn with dignity and pride. Every holiday, the girls of the family accessorized their outfits with the pearls given by our grandmother. They were something we all had in common: the thread that linked our generations together. I recall looking down at my Nana’s casket and I could almost hear her voice whispering
My bracelet sits under my bed, so that I will not lose it. It sits in a box with all of the other things my brother has gotten me over the past couple years. Most people find it weird that I keep the stuff my brother gave me in a box but most people do not have to worry about there brother bring a Marine.
Everything I carry is for memories. The papers, the jewlery, the photos and thoughts, the hope. The thing I’ve carried the longest is my necklace. A thin silver chain with a small amethyst gem. It was given to me on my 16th birthday, really the day after. Right before the Christmas dance. I wear this necklace everday and only take it off when I really need to. My younger cousin comes to visit me and whenever she sees it she calls it a little star. Whenever I get nervous I just hold it and move it up and down along the chain. Of the many things I carry, this necklace is most important to me. Crammed in all the corners of my pockets are silly things, wrappers and receipts, loose change and scrap peices of paper I’m too lazy to throw away. But
In The Inheritors Golding attempts to highlight that man, the chosen creature of God, is beyond the concept of evaluation. Evaluation always favours progress but this is not happening with man. As soon as he gets chance to use his free will, he takes very little time to slip back towards his primal stage of evaluation. For many years in his life, Golding had lived in that part of England, which was embedded, with the signs of the remotest times in human history. Living in such a place, it was not surprising, then, that Wells’ The Outline was an important book in Golding’s life.
My father showed up to my graduation late missing me walk across the stage receiving my diploma, but I still love him.

They soon got a divorce and ever since then he hasn’t been an active reliable father. Years passed, and I was still holding on to hope that he’d someday will re-enter his three-daughter’s life but hope soon vanished when he did not attend anything he should’ve as a father, call to check up on us or send not only monetary support, but support in general. My mother and father had a great relationship I would say before the divorce but of course
Aileana never failed to surprise and please me. Her gift was perfect. I’m looking at an amazing pendant necklace made in gold with a sturdy gold chain. The flat round disc is of a long-haired woman sitting on a surfboard floating near rocks in the surf with a seal in the water close to the surfboard. The woman and the seal were looking at each other. The image was done in relief. I absolutely loved this pendant; I would wear it always and have a part of Aileana close to mah heart. I could wear it under my Selkie pelt. I don’t believe I could have received a better gift.

After a few years, the bracelet is now faded to a light blue, like the color of the early morning ocean. You can no longer see the characters on the bracelet, it’s too faded. However, to me, it means way more than a faded and worn out piece of rubber, it symbolizes our families love, loyalty, strength, both mentally and physically. It relates to our families culture because all of the children are taught loyalty and love. I believe that with a strong foundation, which would be love and loyalty to our family, you can be
