Response 2 (Script)

I feel privileged to admit that I have no shortage of inspiring people in my family. Among the many, my mum inspires me the most. A mother is, undisputedly, the most powerful character in society. For the hardships that mothers endure and persevere through are ones that the rest of us can only manage to understand a mere inkling of, if at all. My mother has done a phenomenal job of persevering and compromising through the tough adult life she's had, of which some aspects are not my stories to share. Raising as many kids as she has in a foreign country while still managing to implement strict religious teachings into our lives is a feat that amazes me and that I will forever be grateful for. Through our good times, she has been humble and through the tough times we face, she has actually worked in order to make money to compensate for our expenses. She symbolizes the type of strength and adaptability I aspire to possess one day.Not only does she teach religion, she practices and learns as well. This, for me, is an ideology worth looking up to and emphasizes the fact that one must be in a state of perpetually educating oneself.

My mother is by far the most hard-working person I know. She inspires me every day.
