Essay # 2

Each person makes different mistakes and gets different experiences in his life. However, each of us has one person who changed our lives. My mother is the most important person who always supported me and gave me good advice. My parents divorced when I was two years old. So, my mother took care of me. She had two jobs to be able to afford all our expenses . My mother gave me all her love and tried to make our life better. Also she was always a good friend to me. My mother taught me to be kind and helpful to other people. Mother's suggestions helped me to make good friends and be successful in my life. The most important event happened to me when I was three years old. I remember it very well. My mother took me to the beach. She asked me to wait for her on the coast until she swam. I didn't obey her and jumped into the water. When my mother went back to the coast, she didn't find me. Mother cried for help but nobody heard her. Suddenly, she saw my bathing cap over the water and caught me. Thank God she saved my life. I was very grateful to her. I was nine years old when I wanted to go to dance school. However, my mother wasn't able to afford my studies. I was very upset. Later was my birthday. All our family joined to celebrate my happy day. My mother presented the best gift in my life. She gave the me opportunity to start my dance lessons . I was very happy. Now I understand that my mother made the big efforts to realize my dream of dancing school. Then I went to camp during the summer season. One day our teachers organized a competition for all children at the camp. They decided to choose one person as the best dancer from all groups of children. So, the teachers invited the musicians to play music for our camp. My mother went to see my performance in the camp. I did modern dance. My movements were flexible and gave me the possibility to dance very easily. I spun, hooked and moved my arms. Eventually, I won this competition. I felt happy. My mother was very proud of me. I graduated from the school when I was seventeen years old. After that I was accepted by the National Academy of Law. My future major was law. However, I finished only four years of school because I moved to the United States. I arrived in May,2003. My mother stayed in the Ukraine. I miss her very much. My mother came to visit me for two months in the Summer,2004. I'm very sad because she is so far from me. My mother encouraged me to go to college in the United States. She always told me that an education is an important part of life. So, I took her words into account and entered Kingsborough Community College where my major is biology. My mother was glad to know about my choice. My mother has been most influential in my life. Before I make a serious decision, I always ask mother's opinion. My mother is my best friend. I love her very much. One day I believe that we will be together.
