In my interview, I did not realize what Mrs. Jones (my mother), does to succeed in the world today. She gives me a strong urge to be successful in life. While interviewing her, she basically told me that one has to work hard to be successful success in life. She further said “the real world is hard and it never gets easy, unless you do something about it”. Having someone that one can look up to, and direct you into the right path to succeed is an awesome thing. I look up to my mother because she is a good role model and she is pretty successful. I learned a lot of new things that I did not know about her, that are pretty cool. She has accomplished so many things in her life, and continues to do great things.
