My Dad Is The Person Who Has Most Inspired Me

927 words - 4 pages

If I were to choose one person in my life that had the most influence or impact on who I am today, I would say it was my dad. Ruth E. Renkel once said, “Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.” That is evident in the woman I have become from the little girl that my dad raised.

Alas, such frivolous fancies were not for a girl like me. I would much rather be covered from head to toe in grease while helping him work on the truck. I had to have boots and jeans to wear so I could go with him and help with whatever he was working on. He fixed everything that was broken in my life, it did not matter if it was mechanical, emotional, or physical my dad was always there to save the day.
