Hi, I have never been motivated by money or objects. I have a genuine love for helping people. In my case, I like to help children and advocate for them as they so often do not have anyone to do it for them. I know that first hand from my own experiences growing up. My goal has always been to help however I can.
I came to this world in interesting circumstances. My mother was still at school and not yet seventeen. She struggled from then on and I guess I carried this with me albeit in an unconscious way.
I started work at 15. It was a local grocery shop and I worked behind the counter selling most food stuff, varying from flour, salt, sugar ... to alcoholic drinks. My mom was my first concern and I supported her - God bless her noble Soul in Heaven - for many years.
I did this for probably a year and moved on, but yes, I was motivated by a desire to help my mom and siblings. Much Love.
My mother influenced my decisions more than I'd like to admit. First of all, because she discouraged me from going to college, however going to beauty school was okay. Go figure. All because I admired hairstyles that I was incapable of duplicating. (Great idea, Mom!)
One of my elementary school teachers also influenced me, by encouraging me to follow my hopes and dreams and by introducing me to new ideas while instilling in me a never give up attitude (I was already quite stubborn, so it wasn't all that difficult for her). She is the reason I am currently pursuing a career as a writer. Because she recognized my need to communicate with others, to be heard.
