Bo Bivins Mrs.Jefferson Writing CGL 4 October 2012 People Who Have Influenced Me I don’t know where I would be today if I didn’t have the people in my life that have influenced me. I am so lucky to have people that have helped me learn things and have raised me the right way, There are several people that have influenced me in my life, but most importantly my mom, my grandpa, and my old baseball coach. All three of these people have made me become the person that I am today. Everyone has problems and everyone needs to have people to help them out when there are problems.

When I was younger and sick, I remember when she would stay home from work to be with me. My mom has influenced me by leading me in the right direction. She has pushed me so hard through school to make sure I made the grades I needed to and to graduate from high school. She would always help me study and help with my homework. My mom has also taught me responsibilities. Throughout high school she made me work and pay for my phone bill, car insurance, and gas. She always reminded me that those are responsibilities and if I get good at them now, then they will help me with the future. She has also taught me good life lesson.
