When faced with the question who and what are my greatest influences is a hard question for me to answer not only because I have so many influences in my life but also because one of the hardest things for me to do is write about myself. Narrowing this subject down to even just a handful is a hard endeavor for me because I have latterly thousands of influences. Everywhere in life no matter where I am or what I am doing I find people, places, and things that influence me in one-way or another. Life isn’t just a great big journey but also a lesson and you get out of it what you put into it. My influences come from my family, my friends, and classmates, even people that I do not like. Starting off I has a large family that stretches out from coast to coast, from north to south. Both of my parents were born in the New York/Pennsylvania area but my father traveled all over the country as a child. I can honestly say that my parents have taught me and influenced my so much. My father not only raised his own three children but also raised my older half sister who was the result of a one-night stand, no matter what he has always tried to do his best at anything that he does. While as a child my fraternal grandparents moved anywhere between once a year to as many as three times a year. They never stayed in one place for very long resulting in bad grades and a lack of friends for my father and his six siblings. When my father got married to my mother she already had one child who he had already been helping take care of and my sister did not know until she was a teen-ager that he was not her father. My father wanted a better childhood for his children than he

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
