Ms. Jenkins played a great role in the life of Alex Fine especially on his success. Who are the people behind your success?

Definitely my parents. They have always been the one to encourage me to go after everything that I want, no matter what it is. They have paid for my college, and have helped me get to where I am today.

That's nice. Most of us, the people behind our success are our parents. I can consider my father as the biggest person behind my success because he always encouraged me to follow my dreams. My mom, cooked for me, prepared for my clothes, among others.

My parents, my sisters and my husband. They are all so encouraging and supportive.

I think there have been different people during different phases of my life. I think currently it would be my husband.

If I ever attain some kind of success, I suppose it'll be my parents, perhaps a lecturer or two.

It's funny because I don't see Alex as being successful. Perhaps one day he will be.

I would say God, my parents, and my husband are all key people in my life who have been there for me, supported me, and helped shape me in becoming the person I am today.

My parents, grandparents, husband and children are the first that come to my mind. Without a great support system, it's hard to be our own personal best.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I agree. we attain different levels of success. May it be a simple or great success, there are unsung people behind who played their role in one way or another.

Ditto here. I think most people owe a great debt to their parents. All those hours of work to ensure my education and success...and the cooking and cleaning and everything they've done for me.
Hi all. I like board games, card games, video games, books (especially children's books and mysteries), stories, cartoons, anime, manga, light novels, animation, and other light-hearted, fun things. Feel free to message if you want to chat!

My mom would have to be my biggest support. I know it sounds petty, but the main force behind me becoming successful is everyone who has ever doubted me. I want to see them watch me succeed even though they always doubted me.

People? Well, my parents, I guess. Without their sacrifices, I would have not been able to accomplish what I have. I have to add that God has blessed me as well.

It would have to be my two nieces and my nephew. They are the people I love most in the world, and they look up to me. They're the reason why I do my best in all of my endeavors and try to achieve success. I want them to be proud of me.
