My parents had the biggest impact in my life because their advises and good doings were my guide in facing everyday life.

I would have to say my husband. Not that my parents didn't have a huge impact. But my husband pulled me out of my bubble and made me the woman that I am today

My Mother had the biggest impact in my life. She has been through a lot in her life, but still stands firm and strong, never willing to give up. I draw a lot of strength, hope and confidence from her. I always thank God for having her in my life and I pray God keep and bless her.

Definitely L Ron Hubbard. Inspite of the controversy that surrounds his creations and concepts, he has changed my life and my ability to look at others and things from a viewpoint that enhance those I look at and see. I will always be thankful that I had the guts to go and investigate inspite of all the bad information and publicity that circulates the world about him,

I remember her as one of the few people at school who really saw "me".
This is so true. One of my " helpers" was my grade 9 English teacher. She brought poetry to life and believed so much in my writing skills. To this day I love writing because of her.

I think all my family has had a big impact on shaping me as a person but if I had to chose one person it would have to be my Dad, he taught me strength and I wouldn't have made it to where I am today without being strong.

My mom has the biggest impact in my life. I grew up in a polygamous family set up. My mum had to always struggle with taking care of us. She could do anything to ensure we don't lack. She taught me to be hardworking and the need to always stay focused and determined in life. She made me who Iam today. My mom, my star my mentor.

I have a friend who has always continuously been supportive and understanding throughout my life. She is seven years older than me, so as I was growing up she was able to pass on very valuable advice while helping me overcome obstacles. I honestly don't know what I would do without her.

My dad. He always made our time with him fun. My parents divorced when I was 3. I was always lucky enough to have a dad that always came for me and my sister when he said he would and brought us on vacations to six flags every year. Every time we were with him he played board games, card games, and video games with us. He took us to the movies or skating and we just always enjoyed our time with him. He always made us feel loved which a lot of people unfortunately don't get to have.

I often don't want to admit it because there is much that I didn't like about him, but the person who definitely made the greatest impact in my life was my father. He surrounded our home with books. Thus, I grew up with a love for reading. He played chess. I love it. Unfortunately, I also inherited some of his voices. Whether for good or for bad he affected me.

My father has made me a very positive person. My father taught me to have faith in god and the art of praying. He has the greatest impact on my life. I inherited the habit of reading from him.

My environment shaped me. I wouldn't give the credit to any one person or one thing. I am still being shaped daily by my experiences and interactions, but I do definitely see how I react to things being similar to both my parents.
