Mother Carmen This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


   My mom is my role model. I look up to herbecause she is an amazing woman in many ways. I will always love her, nomatter what happens.

I admire her for raising three kidswithout the help of a man. She's always supported me. When I wanted toquit school, she told me if I wanted to be someone in this world, I hadto have an education.

She yelled at me, but for a good reason. Iappreciate it now because it made me think about what I was doing. Itmade me understand responsibility.

Looking back, I'm glad I wasbrought up hard. Now I tell Mom how much I love her and thank her foralways being there for me. Even with hard rules times have been tough,we could always depend on her. She'll always be my hero.
