    The person who inspired me to be what I am today is my best friend, . I had a lot of friends and they were not considered good boys but then I met a boy whom I could say that yes he's a good guy. Just since than he teaches me how to express yourself and lead ourself to do good deeds he really is a dime and if I won a one plus 6 I would give it to him,. He deserves it more than I do

    This is. very personal and deep inside my being but found it a fitting place and time to share.

    Growing up in a big city (Philadelphia, PA) without parents it was difficult to make it and grow into a successful professional person, worker, father, and husband. had it not been for my grandparents who took me in to raise me I am not sure where I would have ended up. My grandfather came to America very young working as a seltzer water delivery person in the 1930's. He worked as a laborer his whole life saving money to purchase properties which is what drove his retirement and ability to support us as well as leave some money for me when he was gone. As a little boy I recall working with him in the garage where he spent much of his time fixing, building, and tinkering with things. One day at the end of our time in the garage before going to the house to eat dinner he stopped. me and sat me down to chat. He looked me in the eyes and said look at your hands (as I did I saw they were filthy and said they're gross). He said to me no don't think of them as just dirty. your hands and mind are what will carry you through life, the dirt on your hands represents success. When you do something productive with your hands your creating opportunities which means your dirty hands are evidence of you earning money. He then handed me a $20 bill and said thank you for helping, spend it wisely. I'll never forget that conversation and it empowers me today to be the best I can at everything I do, it is my identification. That moment imprinted on me like nothing ever has. It has empowered me to be a great manager setting examples for my employees in my field and a great father and husband at home. It was and always will be what pushes me to strive to do more and be more.

    My mother has always been my inspiration. She left an abusive household in a poor town in Honduras at the age of 16 and worked to provide for herself and was able to attend college. She's always pushed me to do my best, and her story is an inspiration to never give up. She did not when she was just 16 and in the worst situation imagineable, so why should I when thanks to her sacrifices for me I have so many opportunities?

    She taught me one thing that I never forget: We are all more privileged than someone else out there, in one way or another, and part of a life worth living is using our privileges to extend a hand to those in need and lift them up.

    My dad and mom. I don't feel like sharing heart-wrenching stories in public tho. If I got two phones, I'd give them both to them to replace their aging phones as I already have the Speed You Need!

    Growing up without a father, my uncle has been there to teach me valuable lessons and encourage me to strive to be a better person. He's helped me through many hardships and I'm so grateful that he's in my life today.

    My husband has empowered me throughout my adult life. We met in high school, and since then we have had an interesting life with interesting careers. Without him, I probably would not have moved out of our small town, or started a career in engineering. My husband has supported me practically, letting me move in with him when he left town; and emotionally when I was working alone in London. At times, I have been the main breadwinner, and other times we both struggle together to keep the bills paid, all the while supporting each other. My husband has taken up more of the household chores while I have been busy studying for college while we are both working full time. We both work as a team, but without my husband life would be a lot harder.

    My wife is the one that always support me. When the company I work going bankrupt and I lost my job, she still smile and encourage me and told me that we can make pass this problem. At that time there are many company going down and must fired their worker, so there are many unemployment, and it's so hard to find new job. So we try to sell food in street, me and my wife work together to earn money. We do it for around 1 year, after that we get better works, and we can have more time to spend with our children.

    Can't really say. There have been a lot of people who gave empowered me my whole life. It started with my mom, who has held my hand my whole life and taught me to do everything. Then my teachers who have made me the person I am today and my companion who completes me and supports me in every decision I make.

    None other than my Mother

    My mother is just a regular employee in a small office. She have'd work for our family and brought the impossible to reality. There are times she is sacrificing too much(time,love,money etc). This is the best gift for her.

    Education! Yes education. I was lucky enough to get a very good foundational home education followed by formal education bestowed upon me by my parents. It has not only made me a learned & intellectual person but also made me a better human being (not only considerate about people but also work tirelessly for their benefit).

    My elder brother is my biggest inspiration. He was like Batman and I was Robin. He is my hero. Growing up we often played, had fun and even got into trouble together. I made many of my life choices to be more like him; For example I studied computer science because he studied computer science, I married a woman from a certain African tribe because his wife is from that same tribe and I named my new born son after him.

    My math and my biologi teachers have played a big part in who I am to day. My biologi teacher has kept telling me that I am better than I think, and not aim for the simple tings but aim high.

    My wife ( today we got married see picture in the bottom), inspired me to be who I am today.
    I met her some years ago in a detox resort in Thailand. Being the yoga teacher. From being a big too heavy guy I became the healthy good feeling person i am today (picture on the right). What more can you ask for in your life ;-)
    We are now living together in Holland.
    Kind regards, Henk

    My grandfather has inspired me in my life, he is an example of bounty and commitment in every aspect of his life. He was the first graduate of his village, and he did it while he was working in a factory, to give to my grandmother and my dad and uncles a better life. I started my university career becouse of him and I cannot be more proud of anyone else.

    My mom is my hero. The reason why she is my hero is that after my brother and my dad committed suicide, she stayed strong for me and my big sister. Even when I wanted to give in my dark thoughts she was there to nag me that I won't do anything stupid. Because she stayed strong for me and my big sister, she deserves the recognition from me that she is my hero.
