My Mom From the very beginning it has just been me and my mom, and there is no one luckier than me or sweeter than her. I think back to when I was little, we would sing songs in the car on the way to school. Twenty-five years later, we still sing songs in the car, but now on our way to the mall. If I was having a bad day, all was made better by dancing badly in the kitchen and it still work to this day. I have no better friend to bring be up when I am down and give me a reality check when I am wrong. My mom taught me to be strong and independent, with the courage to go to law school while raising a little monster. My mom did everything she could and sacrificed so much so I could have the best opportunities in life. I had a childhood full of amazing experiences. I knew what it was to appreciate art and education. I could understand and relate to different cultures and food through travel. I understood self sacrifice and humility through charity. Today I am happy, confident, competitive, and strong. I could be none of those this without my Mamare.
