Ben Wilkins Mr. Oldenburg Adv. Composition. January 29, 2015 Metamorphosis Over the past few years my relationships with my mentors and my view on their role in my life has played a huge part in who I am today. I have had many role models come and go. Some are gone, some I dearly miss, and some I pray will stay with me as long as possible. Some are coaches, some are teachers, and some are family members.
