Who I Admire Most

I have several role models, each for different aspects of my life. However, the number one role model in my life is my mom. I have learned a lot from my mom and without her in my life I would not be the person I am today. She brings out the best in me and yet never has expected anything from me. She is caring, compassionate, and giving. I know that no matter what, I can always depend on my mom when I really need her and I hope to return the favor to my loved ones. To sum it up, I look up to my mom because I learn how to be an overall good person from her.

I have a couple role models when it comes to school and my future career. I look up to two of my lecturers, Mary Mead and Katie Clark. I have gotten to know Mary over the past couple of years and have found her to be a cheerful, friendly, and kindhearted person who is always willing to lend me a hand. I also look up to her because she has a wide variety of experience in the field of dietetics. Similarly, when I think of Katie, I think of someone who has done it all. She has many life experiences to draw from and has already accomplished so much at such a young age. For example, she has her own practice a RD, something that I would like to have one day.

Lastly, my aunt has always had a huge impact on my life. She is someone who knows what she wants and is not afraid to go out and get it, no matter what it takes. She understands the importance of having a sense of humor and being able to laugh. She is continuously trying new things and growing as a person. I enjoy spending time with her because I learn a lot by having her as an example.

All of my role models contribute something different and unique to my life and I appreciate them all a great deal.
