As a child and most of my adolescent years, both of my parents were my primary care takers. My mother worked in an industrial society where the labor union was present, making air craft engines for Rolls Royce. My father has always drove some kind of truck, whether it be a semi or a dump truck. My mom usually worked long hours and most of the time seven days a week so my dad was home with us from the time we got out of school until bed time.
I saw my neighbors through the window. Reluctantly i had agreed to hang out with them a few hours earlier, mostly because my mom forced me to. I popped in a ear bud, a song by my chemical romance corsed through my blood. I stepped out to the warm sun, the smell of freshly cut grass hit me, they were the feelings of summer.
My dad works in maintenance in a textile factory while my Mother work in a Restaurant to support our family. Blessed by my parent unwavering support, it would have been more difficult to get as far in school as I have, their hard work inspires me to becoming a
Growing up I came from a family of two sisters and a brother. My parents worked hard to be sure that there was always a roof over our head, food on the table, and clothes on our back. My worked for various companies until he was able to obtain his degree as an electrical technician. Today he maintains his own business known as McGhee Electric. My mother also took on various jobs to make ends meet. She began work as a cosmetologist and
My parents have worked from sunrise to sunset for 22 years now. I have been throught most of it with them. I am aware that I am, where I am because of my parents hard work and dedication to make their dream a reality for my siblings and I to receve a higher eductaion. My parents have tought me very well that
When I first moved to New York as a newly-arrived immigrant nine years ago, I was amazed, among other things, at the diversity and opportunities that I observed around me. It was equally shocking, as I underwent the process of becoming a New Yorker, to see the uneven geographical spread of these great opportunities throughout the city. Specifically, I am speaking of the disadvantages of children in low income neighborhoods with higher crime rates than surrounding areas.
My mother was a schoolteacher and my father worked long hours running his own businesses. I
It is the first warm spring day. Today is my Grandfather's birthday. My Dad, my two older sisters, and I decide to go visit him. Mom Has work until five, as she usually does, so she will not be coming with us. My Grandparents live right down the street so we walk instead of taking the car. The whole family was there, such as: My Aunt, two Cousins, my Uncle, my Grandparents, and my family. The whole day was spent with laughter, cake, and outside activities. Sadly the day came to an end and my family walks back over to our house. My mom was home from work, and as soon as my dad walked into the house she said to him, “We need to talk”. What happened to my parents next was something I never expected. I will never forget the date, April 10,
Since the day I was born, my family has always been there for me. But it wasn’t until a few years ago that I’ve genuinely had more appreciation for them. As of today, my love and appreciation continues to grow.
My mom had to make sure my brothers and I always have been prepared for school events and other goings when she should have been sleeping because she would have to work the same day. My mother worked two jobs many of times, so I can have my hair done all the time, clothes to wear, and school supplies. As soon as I turned six-teen years old I wanted a job, but my mother refused for me to work while I was in school she wanted me to focus on school and to do my best in school so I can have a career and not a job. My mom always have said a job is temporary but a career is forever if you have a degree you can go just about anywhere with your degree and start working again if you ever decided to leave. I can recall my mom getting sick while trying to work multiply jobs so that my brothers and I can enjoy life to the fullest. She wanted us to be kids while we could and not to pay any bills, because once you are grown there is no going back.
My father found himself out of a job and accepted a new position requiring him to live out of state. My older brothers were off to college, and my mother went to work to help support our family. The job she took involved odd hours, including late nights, early mornings and some overnight shifts. Of course now I realize how lucky we all were that my parents found good jobs, even if there were some complications involved. At the time, the child that I was could only wonder “what about me?”
My father is a maintenance man at Emess Management, where he works to maintain an apartment complex and get apartments ready for people to live in. My mother works as a night nurse at Jeanes Hospital, where she cares for the ill or prepares people for medical procedures. Oddly enough, most people on both my mother and father’s sides of the family have jobs that are either the same or similar to my parents.
I come from a little family of six. I say little because I mean it’s only my three siblings, my mom and my grandma. When I was young (keep in mind I was six) our dad left the pictures and since then life has been good. Most people try to sympathize with you after telling them. That makes me a little ticked because it’s like they think I’m still hurt from it, like when you were younger and start crying over a little scrape everyone gives you that ‘Oh you poor baby’ kind of look. I hate receiving that look from people after I tell them. My family sort of had to adjust big time after he left no questions about it. My mom was working longer shifts and my grandma got a job as a housekeeper at a walking distance nursing home.
My parents have instilled a hard working ethic in me. My mom has become one of my largest role models due to the simple fact of motivation and determination to provide for myself and my siblings. As a triplet, my parents 40 hour weeks turned into 168 hours. Managing full-time jobs and 3 kids was extremely difficult. If I audit who I am today, it is a direct reflection of my two parents and their work habits. My mom is a preschool teacher and has always preached “working together is the best way to accomplish anything.” This results in my love for team sports and spending time with people. My dad would come home from his mechanical job and work on anything around the house in addition to dinner. “As long as the sun is in the sky, there are things
No one can’t meet a family like mine’s. My family is well diversified. Every family member plays an important role in all my family’s lives. In my family, there are four people: my father, my mother, my little brother and me. My father is one who brings money home and is also responsible for organizing and planning family trips. My mother is the one who is in charge for making meals and makes sure everyone eats at the appropriate times. My little brother is the pet of the family. He actually doesn’t have any responsibilities, for he’s the pet. I am the rock of support in my family. I always go beyond my parents’ expectations. I also support my younger cousins and little brother, by being a role model that they can look up to. Another
