LatinitasMagazine.org - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

 The most influential person in my life is definitely my mother. Growing up she always set an example of independence and what it meant to do things on her own without a husband. I remember seeing her come home from work when I was young and although very tired, she would kick off her heels and join me on the couch to watch movies and catch up on how our day went. She made me believe that everything was possible, a great mother and she had a career. I remember daydreaming of the day that i would be able to work and go to college, the very situation I am currently in. Seeing her busy and always having something to do was something that I always admired and still do. The most important thing that I admire about my mother is her honesty. She never strays away from those hard questions that would reveal something about her not being a "perfect" mom. I think that all of those hard stories she told me about her personal life to answer my "life questions" definitely molded me, because I've always had an unfiltered way of looking at the world. My mother's honesty is something that I have and it has helped me communicate better and ultimately it is responsible for my choice to stay in the Communications field.
