More About Me

Someone who has the most influence on me would be my mother because she is such a strong woman and she is always there for me. A tradition in my culture is that whenever someone is getting married, they have a ceremony where you wear traditional clothing and it’s basically when the bride’s family gives her away to start her own family. Something that makes me smile is when I see someone else smile or laugh. My favorite sport is basketball and my favorite NBA player is LeBron James, he was drafted in 2003, he played for the Cleveland Cavaliers for 7 years, he left Miami after 4 years and returned to the Cavaliers, he has been in the NBA for 11 years, he has won 8 MVP’s, and he has won 2 championships.

My Values

I value many things in life, especially love, family, knowledge, loyalty, and education. I don't really value wealth, recognition, or power. I think that if you value those things, then in your life you wouldn't be as happy, and what's the point in life if you don't have happiness. I believe that everything happens for a reason. If you do something it'll have had meaning to your life in some way.
