Who is someone you admire and why?

My mom – She raised my younger sister and I as a single mom for a time after she got divorced, while working full-time as an educator and earning her doctorate. She helped develop my love of sports when I was seven by taking me to Cleveland Indians baseball games and Cleveland Cavaliers basketball games and I am still a die-hard fan of all Cleveland sports teams today as a result. She also taught me tennis until I surpassed her! But mostly, I learned about hard work and perseverance from her. Today, she still keeps busy and has a bigger social calendar than I do.
