Am very impressed with the manner my mother brought me up. Her adage has been my point of reference in anything I do. She taught me to be hard working because she had never tolerated laziness at all. This impact has defined who I am today.

For me, my brother plays the biggest impact in my life because he serves as my inspiration to finish my study.

Easily my answer would be my mother, Ezinne Christiana osu and is a person I truly admire and idolize, those in our family know how important role my mother played in helping my father build up the home. Many key decisions that helped our family growth was because of my mother's directions and prayers . I admire her throughness and grace in handling various aspects of the family. The saying "Behind every great man is a woman " truly applies to my mother and father.

This question has got me thinking for a very long time. I think that honor goes to my father. He it was that had the biggest impact on my life even without my knowing...sounds weird, right?

My mom has the biggest impact on my life. She is the one that taught me everything I need to know in life. Without her, I would be a very different person.

My father. I come from a traditional background where girls should live a certain life. He let me take decisions for myself (at the cost of hearing what an uncultured daughter he raised from way too many people who can otherwise be termed "relatives").

My mother has had a significant impact on my life, watching her pull through certain situations has been inspiring and encouraging and my parents have really made me who I am today

I come from a broken home so I doubt if I can't give much credit to my parents but there is one person whom all honour and all glory goes to, he helped heal my wounds my broken heart and give me a reason to get up every morning feeling thankful and his name is Jesus. The greatest superhero of all time!

I would say parents, grandmother, and a couple teachers. They are ones who encouraged me and told me I could do anything I wanted in life!

My parents played and continue to play a huge role in my life. The punishments, the corrections, prayers and encouragements all did what they were meant to do in my life.

While I would say both of my parents, I am very like my father. I see him as a role model. Nothing fazes us and we are both very laid back..in fact I think the last time either of us lost our temper must be back in the 70s.. :lol2:

Both my parents have seriously impacted who I am as an individual. My father instilled in me my love of reading, and my mother cultivated my curious and imaginative nature. I literally wouldn't be who or where I am today without either of their influences.

Also, they are an endless resource of hugs and love. They will never know how much that has affected me.

I'm not sure who had the biggest impact on my life. I looked up to my sister, but eventually I was just the annoying little sister who was pushed away. My dad worked a lot, so I admire him for taking care of his family the way he did/does. My mom took care of me. Made sure I was fed and dressed, taken care of. But I honestly can't say who made the biggest impact. I have my dad's work ethic so I know he impacted me in becoming who I am today.
