Someone asked me the other day, "Who inspires you to be the best you can be?" The answer that came to my mind right away was my Mom. My Mom helps me and inspires me in so many ways. She helped me make this website, and she thought of the idea of making food sacs to give to the homeless when we go into the city. She is very compassionate and cares a lot about her family and others. She also inspires me to do my fair share in the house with family responsibilities, like emptying the dishwasher and doing the laundry. In so many ways, she helps me be the best person I can be.
My Dad inspires me in a different way. He inspires me to do my best in the sports I am learning to play, especially hockey since he plays hockey, but also other sports such as basketball and tennis. I love the time we spend together playing sports.
My sister inspires me to be the best big brother I can be. We play together a lot and I love having her company because she's a lot of fun. She doesn't always agree with my ideas so it teaches me to learn how to collaborate better. She is a great sister.
Many other people and leaders inspire me too, but those in my family inspire me everyday to be the best I can be.
