I am most thankful for having my family, friends, and doctors, who help me have a happy and healthy life. I am most thankful for all my family members, especially my Mom and Dad.

Our house provides the shelter we need to sleep and enjoy ourselves.

From a young age, Stark wanted a perfect wife, kids, and a job he enjoys. In his opinion, he’s gotten a perfect wife, perfect kids, and a fantastic work experience.

I truly enjoyed being someone he depended on and confided in, in his last years. I strongly believe that my passion to become a social worker stems from the bravery and comforting nature of being there for my grandfather.

My Legacy By Drew Gawlas I wish to leave a personal legacy to my children, one that will live on in their hearts. I do not want to leave behind something with no purpose or meaning, like a meaningless item of mine. Rather, I want to teach my children important values. Of all the wonderful things my parents have ever given me, the greatest gifts were the pieces of moral guidance that shaped me into the person I am today. The legacy I will leave for my children will be the values I teach them throughout their childhoods: compassion, hard work, and confidence.
My family has always been the center of my universe. They’ve taught me the importance of being united and taking care of one another—because in the end, all we truly have is each other. My parents have raised me to be a good daughter, sister, and citizen. They’ve shaped me to be respectful, responsible, and virtuous, knowing these values will last a lifetime. But above all, my parents have instilled in me an appreciation and eagerness for education.
