... like it did before.
Ever since I could remember, my mother has been right beside me supporting me with every step I take. She is my role model. The one I look up to because she inspires me and my decisions. She has taught me right from wrong. When I make decisions and she does not always agree with them, she stays behind me all the way because she wants me to always be happy. Whenever I need to make a decision, she advices me to think about myself and what I want. She always knows what to say. One of the many times my mother helped me with decision-making was when I applied for college and I started thinking about what to study. She told me to think about what I like to do, what I am good at the most, and what I want to be in the future. And that is when I decided to study accounting in business. Without her, I would have never made the decision that benefits me.
