There are so many things that have allowed me to grow from a boy to the better man I am today. In the following paragraphs, I will indicate various things which shaped my life completely.
Family.
Family members are the main individuals that you can fully trust. It is the most important social group to which a person could belong to. We taught by our families about the importance of knowledge, hard work and effort. I am from an extended family, and I can say that all of the members within my family forms big part of my life. Sometimes, I don’t realize how much of an impact they have on me, whether they are my parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. As we grow up, we tend to take different paths which serve our different interests as we want to become self-sustainable and independent but we realize how much of an impact we have to one another. We are firmly closer to each other with our hearts. At the end of the day I know that I am who I am because of my family advices and decisions I get from my family. Specifically, my mother I am grateful that she brought me into this world into this world and was able to care of my education even after the demise of my father.
Sports.
The most influential thing which contributed to what I am today, was the desire and ambition of being a sportsperson. At my tender age, being talented and playing football in my community shaped me the most as I was duly chosen by my teammates as their captain. As a result, my talent in playing football has shaped my identity by making me more of a socialite, a leader, open minded about diversity and an influential person to the youth around my community.
Deaths
Death puts you on the edge of life. Life could be hard when lose someone so special in your life in times of when you need that particular person most; it seems like your life is definitely in a pit in that certain time. Just in the middle of my examination at high school, I received bad news that my father was no more. I was hard to concentrate in the examination room and I was affected emotionally but I was able to get good result. After such, I stayed strong and also learnt to be independent. Infact, in my life, I have been broken into pieces and put back together. I have known grief. I am fragile. I have scars. I am weak, and I am strong at the same time. I consider myself changed, perhaps for the better or perhaps for the worse. Death has changed me.
