Throughout my life, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many people who have helped mold me into the person I am today. But there’s one person who I know I couldn’t live without and therefore is the most important person in my life. This person will do anything she can for me, gives me wonderful advice, and has taught me a lot about life. She’s my godmother, Antoinette W. (I call her Toni). She’s been apart of my life since I was born, but I really needed her more as I approached my teenage years and withdrew from my mom. Toni understood that I needed her without ever saying it, and have helped change me for the better.
Toni has done numerous things to make me realize that she’ll do anything she can for me. For example, When I was younger, I played basketball with dreams of possibly going professional, until I became injured. The doctor found scarred tissue in both my knees, that’s why it hurt when I ran. When Toni found out I was injured, she surprised me one night, and brought me a huge “Get Well” chocolate chip cookie with a balloon. I really wasn’t expecting anything; just knowing she cared was enough. Toni has done things for me that I am really grateful for. For instance, during my freshman ye
Toni said, " continue with the rest of the season, try to show the coach that she"tms making a mistake by not playing you, and by give more than the starter players in practice and warm-ups. For instance, one night while talking to Toni on the phone I told her I knew my career choice for the future. I called Toni that night and told her I decided to quit volleyball, because I felt I wasn"tmt getting sufficient playing time. For example, in my junior year of high school, I took Algebra 2, even though I"tmm not the best in math. Toni does anything she can for me without ever asking for anything in return. Every time Toni does what she can for me, given me advice, or taught me about life, I thank her for what she"tms done, but I don"tmt think she realizes the tremendous impact she had on the person I"tmll become. I told of course I loved playing, but I didn"tmt understand why the coach didn"tmt believe in me. Toni not only helped me not give up on things but she also encourages me to do what I truly want in life. She has helped teach me how to never give up on something I believe in. At the end of the season my school honored the sport teams with athletic awards, I wasn"tmt going because I had no one to take me. Toni helped boost my spirit and made that one of the most enjoyable nights ever. I remember not playing three games in a row. " Toni not only help me with school problems, but also with boy dilemmas. For example, I almost quit volleyball in my sophomore year because I was upset and discouraged since I wasn"tmt playing adequate amount of time.
