My father would tell me as a child to do all things with heart. At the time, it didn’t come across my little mind that my father would go through the hardships of running a dry cleaning business much less seeing him go out in the mornings at 5:00am and arrive home at often 9:00pm or sometimes even much later. He was doing this to support a family of four, and he would never willingly accept praise. That is what motivates me through school. In academics or in athletics my father wanted me to strive to excel in all aspects of life. He encourages me by telling me not to suffer from a hard life all because I didn’t try my hardest. Because of him, I managed to keep my grades high enough to transfer from a public school to a private school system in my junior high years. This is why I trust him: he believes in me that I can keep a high standard in everything. I trust him because he inspires me to push myself to my highest limits.
