Q: Can you explain why you chose your mom for this project?
A: I tried to think of celebrities that inspired me, or inspiring women.
the first person I thought of was my mom, and I thought that was too predictable, but I quickly realized that she truly does inspire me and she deserves to know it.
Q: What does she mean to you?
A: I’m not sure how to even put this into words. She means the world to me, and then some. She loves me so much that I feel it from hundreds of miles away. Thereʼs nothing that equates to the amount of appreciation and love that I have for her.
I love her more than I love sushi.
Q: Can you name 3 qualities your mom has that inspire you?
1. She always stays positive! the only negative thing I can ever say about her is how positive she is, even when I just want to complain and be pitiful, sheʼs always telling me to stay positive. Sometimes I just wanna say “ugh mom you donʼt get it”, but sheʼs literally always right. I always make it through, and my world doesnʼt end like I thought it would.
2. She is very supportive. Not just of me, but of everyone around her. I have seen her lift people up and help so many people throughout my life and she never complains and rarely asks for help herself. Sheʼs very selfless.
3. She loves everyone and never judges. she will be friends with/nice to anyone regardless of race, religion, etc. and itʼs very inspiring because sometimes it can be hard not to judge too quickly, but she always reminds me that you never know what someone is going through and what their values are and they are just as important as yours.
Q: If there was an opportunity to tell your mom something you’ve always wanted to tell her, what would you say to her?
A: girl, you summa-time fine! lol just kidding. You know Iʼve never been the most affectionate person and Iʼve never been one to talk about my feelings, but I want you to know I love and appreciate you for everything that you have taught me over the years. Although I may be stubborn and hardheaded at times, it all means so much and youʼve helped me more than you probably know. You always stay real with me and help me no matter what kind of mess I get into, and you never just say things you think I want to hear, and I realize how strong that has made me as a person. I am thankful for you, I value you, and I love you!
