    My one and only brother, he is my role model and also my influenced person. He teaches me what is true love. He is the other word of care, co-operation, kind etc. In my whole life, he is my energy to live such a good person.

    Definitely it was my father. He taught me patience, gentleness, to accept everyone for whom they were, how to negotiate without being an ass, and to stand up for myself when necessary. He taught me to enjoy life, do my work well, and be proud when the work was finished. I was so honored to take care of him and help usher him on to the next part of life's journey from here.

    My grandmother. She was always relaxed, laughed at any problems, and survived having five children without a husband. I have always admired her strength and positive emotions no matter the situation.

    My mother, she has endless patience and endurance and I have learned that from her. She also taught me to be confident in myself and to make the right decisions and stand by it.
    She also taught me to go out and get what I set my goals to attain and always be positive and true to my self and to the people around me.
    Her teaching has helped me to pick myself up whenever I'm down.

    Probably my mom.  After my dad died, it was just the two of us. She was a kind of nervous type and a worrier and I can recall at a very young age helping her with things.  I learned lessons of what to do and also what not to do in situations.

    Another one would be my aunt. I moved in with my aunt and uncle when my mom died. I could not stand my aunt, she drove me nuts.  But she is still the voice in my head at times causing me to do better and make good choices. Love her dearly now but when I was 15 - NO WAY.

    Very hard, I have a lot of influences in life but I never had a personal influencer I had to look to people I had interests in. If I had to say the number 1 person, it would have to be Bruce Lee. He was so smart with life and everything, studying his interview's, huge influence. Bruce Lee all the way.

    Probably Nietzsche. His philosophical views have helped me to analyze and make sense of my own.

    My dad is the one who has influenced me the most. He taught me the importance of patience, sacrifice and a salt-of-the-earth attitude towards the working life. I would be a pale shadow of the man I am today if it weren't for the guiding influence of my father. He raised me with such good parenting that I feel guilty for having been so lucky to have him, and I've yet to decide what I'll do with my life when I can't go to him for help.
