To me, I live my life day to day based on what I grew up around. My parents always believed that one day I would become a writer because that is what I love. I never thought that I would ever actually have the one in a million chance to have an Essay published. But my parents pushed me to open up my letters, poems, songs and essays to others and let them see my talent. My father has always been one of the biggest inspirations in my life he showed me and taught me, that no matter what if you start something then finish it.
