In today’s life, people are influenced by someone or something that has a long lasting effect in their lives. To me, the fondest moments of my life has been created by the members of my family. I believe, my auntie Rose Mary a true African lady has been the most influential. I am what I am today because of her.
When I write a description about my auntie, there is nothing decisive about it, it is all about admiration. My auntie works as a counselor, she works with several learners. Watching her at work is the most inspiring thing, especially the manner in which she is able to connect with kids. All her learners trust and adore her; she has a gig tog emotional aptitude. She is able to get in a class or rooms, gets a person who is the bleakest, and manages to make him/her smile. There is everything to admire and not to fear about this delicate and petite woman.
Actually, my auntie is that ordinary woman, but in her small appearance there is an extraordinary perseverance, a kind heart, and an altruistic soul. The kind of auntie that brought me up is a persistent woman; she has a strong willpower to face any tough challenge that comes her way. My auntie is that person who always demonstrates great enthusiasm for any unfortunate lives without asking a dime, she has a great compliance to assist anybody in misery even though she does not have much. In this life nobody has taught me like my auntie has, She has not only inspired me on how to triumph over hardships I experience in life, but she has imparted me invaluable life lesson. Her perseverance and fortitude and a her kind heart has inspired me to grow and live a life of dependable person, a life of determination and perseverance, a life with cordial eagerness to receive and give love to anybody and have positive beliefs in future.
When my auntie smiles, she uses strength in her to see whether it can get any better. She has russet brown eyes which look like a skin of a winter apple, which are full of compassion and warmth. Her skin is dark in color. When she is at home her black neat hair is always tied up, it bounces with every step she takes. Mu auntie has an extraordinary character other than the rest women have; she never shouts at anybody, she has a low-keyed silky voice which encloses the listener with security with each word said. She is a great person that I love unconditionally and will admire forever.
From my auntie I have learned a lot of valuable traits in my life hence; I give her all my credit for making me the person I am today. Through my auntie, I have learned how to be patient with children, how to forgive, and how to love myself and other people. There are other people who have influenced several values in my life, but I believe my auntie has stood out more than any other person, she is an influential lady.
My auntie has shown me how to strive for anything that I want in life. She has taught me if I want to make it in life, I should put my all in my work at hand. Additionally, she has taught me if I have to start something then I should finish it. This is one trait that has played a major role in my life; it helps me to accomplish my tasks. It is the trait that has assisted me to stay in basketball during my junior level, and did well so I continued playing till today.
My auntie has brought me up as a person who does not only think about her actions, but as a person who is aware of the consequences of her actions. It is from my auntie I know for any decision I make there are several results, therefore, I should look at all possible results, weigh them and then choose. She has shown me how to approach every problem like an opportunity to discover something new and learn, and never to be discouraged if the problem seems big.
In our home education is highly prioritized, there is this conversation I had with my with my auntie I vividly remember about education;
Me: yes auntie.
Auntie: one should learn as if they will die tomorrow. Education does not end it continues over generation, new things are being invented never get tired of learning…
When I was little auntie used to read educative stories, and would test me for spelling. As I grew older she would took me to the library and showed me how to use reference materials. While it may seem and sound generic that I described my auntie, I believe without the core values she has imparted in me, I would not be the scholar I am today.
