I would have to say it was my adopted father. He brought me to the US and gave me the opportunity to succeed. Instilled in me the importance of respect, poise, kindness, hard work and a great education. Who has influenced you the most?

Obviously there is and image of my parents i have in me. If you talk about the influance, I will say i have my own influance, But want to have the influance of Mahatma Gandhi. As i have known about the story of him by people and books. In India people were ready to be non violent after even that if some one is being very cruel to them and violent as it was the wish of this great leader. I want this ability, If 360 million people were ready to be beaten but not being violent due to the wish of this great leader, how much influacive power he really had. We cant imagine. I want that influance which i really dont have by now, even a part of this

My mom and my sisters. My mother has really instilled in me moral values and I pray that I never lose them (when I go off to college). My sisters are kind of my role models because they're all off to college (all four of them) making something of themselves and I don't want to let them down.

Honestly it's really not my parents, It's m Grand parents I was born and raised by them so They passed the good things to me, I think. So They made such an impact to my life.

I would say that God has influenced me the most. I've learned many life lessons through the things God has allowed to happen in my life, and still allows to happen. Second to that, my husband and my children, because they love me even through my faults. It's a love that is unconditional..and is the closest to the way God loves me than anyone else...and beneath that I would have to say my counselor and my dear friend who adopted me into her family. She has taught me what it's like to be a real mother and wife. They both continue to stay by me even through the hard times. The reason I don't include my parents is because they haven't stuck by me through the hard stuff...my dad more than my mom, but they have both abandoned me one time or another.

I'm probably going to have to say my mother. She is the best person I've ever met in my life. I have never NEVER heard her tell a lie. She's been filled with kindness and honesty my entire life. She is almost too nice , people tend to use her a lot because of how good she is. I have always seen her as a staple to who I'd like to be. My mother is my idol.

i guess my parents influenced me a lot. They are i look up to. Though they are not that successful in life but i definitely love them being such a great persons. I'm not saying this because they are my parents but because that's what i have seen to them. They are good from inside and out. As much as possible i wanna be like them in terms of goodness.
