My Role Model

There are many qualities in people that I model myself after, such as strength and independence. Compassion for others, motivation, and perseverence are just a few more that I would put on the list for a well rounded individual. However, it is rare when someone truly amazing displays all of the above characteristics and more. So, I am extremely thankful to have met a few of these people in my life.
Throughout the past three years at Cal, my mother has unconditionally supported me and I have learned many important things about life from her along the way. She is a strong, confident individual who never fails to put forth her best at work and for her family. She is my confidant and a true friend whom I always feel comfortable going to when I am troubled or confused. But not only is she giving, but she also finds a way to juggle work and family. She is one of those career women who wants it all and has tried her best to achieve all her goals without neglecting her responsibilities as a mother. And I sincerely admire her for the strength and passion that she exerts in every aspect of her life.
