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.
