My mother and father, They have gave me the ultimate love To their best ability. I have learned to love others And to love myself. They have taught me not to judge, but to care about your own actions.
I was born in Barron, Wisconsin to my Mom and Dad, Jennie and Jesse Nitchey. When I was brought home While I was being born my parents where in the process of building our three story house that we still call home today.
My parent have alway said to me, never to give up on what I'm trying to accomplish or the goal that I'm trying to reach even though if it seems impossible. That they will alway support me on anything that I want to do, maybe not financially wise because they will help the best they can. My whole life things were never just handed to me, I worked for them and some people tell me that my parents should do more for me that I shouldn't have to work so hard because I'm just 17 years old that I'll have the rest of my life to work, but I think differently because it made me realize life isn't just fun and games, it helped me mature faster then most kids, it also gave me life skills that will help me out in college and life after college.
I was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana and I was the first child of my family. When I was one we moved to Arizona for a year. Then when we moved back to Indiana my sister was born, and now I have three brothers and three sisters. My life has taken taken some twists and turns and now I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan as a manager of agents for artists, performers and athletes.
Of course, my parents were also my role models but there was a difference between my parents and my teachers. Being a daughter of immigrant parents had its obstacles. For example, when it came to completing my assignments I struggled because of my parent’s low proficiency in the English language. I was not receiving the assistance and support that I should have been of receiving. Having a positive and strong relationship with my teachers facilitated my decision to seek for the assistance I needed. My teachers never looked down on me or embarrassed me because I could not grasp the material at the same pace as the other students. They understood my situation and offered my family and I the assistance we needed to best aid in my success in accomplishing my work and contributing to the learning environment of the classroom. I was never given any kind of privilege or special treatment. I always worked diligently to thrive in my courses. Without that strong and positive relationship with my teachers I would have never found the motivation and inspiration to continue with my education through grade school and attend a four-year institution.
Growing up, my mom was a big impact on my life. Two days of the week she was a dental assistant. The other days she was just my mom. When she came home on the days after work she would smell minty and fresh from working in her dental office. I feel blessed to have been able to have my mother as a constant influence in my life. She showed me that I could be as mother as well as have a good job; I did not need to pick one or the other. My mother taught me how to stand up for myself and how not to be a pushover. One of the most important things I think that my mother taught me was how to be compassionate. Even as a young child when I heard about some of the terrible things that had happened in the world, my heart broke for those
Both my mom and my dad have taught me numerous life lessons they learned through their own life experiences. For instance, my dad’s abusive aunt kicked him out of the house at the age of fifteen. Luckily, he still graduated high school and moved on to join the Navy Seals so he would be able to afford and attend universities. Unfortunately, in one of the missions he sustained an injury, but he recovered and attended law school, even though the doctors thought that he would need assistance for the rest of his life. My mom immigrated here to the United States and vowed to herself that she would be successful and help people while doing so.
I was born in Montrose, Colorado. Yet, I didn't spend much of my life roaming around it's land. When I was three, my parents had an epiphany, decided to buy an RV, and take my brother and me to Mexico on exhilarating and exotic adventures.
I was born in Lubbock, Texas at the local hospital and was immediately welcomed into the world by my loving parents and caring big sister. Most of my early childhood was spent moving from town to town in the panhandle of Texas. However, when I turned eight-years-old I traded the endless plains of the Texas panhandle for the lakes and trees of Bridgeport, Texas. This is the place where connected with the local community and grew closer with my family.
Her name was Mrs. Treneff and her determination and passion for teaching helped shape me into the student I am today. Her help paired with hard work allowed me to transition a year ahead in Math; something I never thought possible at that age. She made learning math exciting for me. When she taught me the basic principles of algebra, I was taken back to the excitement I would feel when I answered a history fact.
My father has always emphasized the importance of learning. The most valuable lesson that he has taught me is that a considerable amount actual learning happens outside of the classroom. Therefore, even though he constantly pushes me to study hard, he is equally as persistent in encouraging me to be aware of what is going in the world. His enthusiasm for learning is mostly evident in travel, and this has led me to become a very adventurous and open-minded
One teacher that has made an impact on my life is a teacher I actually have this year which is my football coaches. Those Coaches have made an impact on my maturity because they understand how i think and how I do things in my personal life day to day. They always give us lectures when one of us does wrong then they somehow relate it to growing up. One example I remember is the girl crazy talk that he had with us about changing clothes before you go back to the main school building and smelling good so the girls won’t hate you and avoid you. Another talk i'm pretty sure that everyone in football remembers is the “respect girls talk”. Basically that was a talk about how to respect them and then you will have a better future. Another one that
My father's protectiveness and selflessness generated at a young age for him. He is the ninth of twelve children, and often told us stories of how he had to look after, and practically raise his three younger siblings after my grandfather had passed. He made certain they completed their chores around my grandmother's farm, maintained good hygiene practices, and kept up with their schoolwork. School was extremely important to my father, because he knew an education was the only way he could be successful.
Personally, I feel that I have learned most of what I feel that I can learn and/or teach from my mother and my grandparents. My mom is what I like to call a constant seeker of information. She can never be content without knowing all that is possible to know at a certain time, and she does an excellent job at relaying this information to others. My grandparents, on the other hand, are the most fantastic teachers the world has ever seen in my eyes. They fit in well with the concept of the stereotypical grandparents who spoil their grandkids rotten and teach them valuable lessons on the way. You know, the sort of stories
