Draft's Picks

David J. - "The Blind Side" Miami

Every day I wake up and think ‘what can I do with my life.’ Just like every other kid my age, we seek guidence. I got some advice from someone who means a lot to me, and she said to look at the things that I enjoy doing, things that I can see myself continuing. When I finally took the time out to explore and contemplate what it is that I enjoy I found a variety of things, but the one that stood out the most was photography, as I currently learn more and more about certain features of cameras and the art of photography. There's the one woman I have to thank. I would have to thank my mother Wendy Jones. Just like any other mother, she has been there for me to support, cheer on, share advice, and be my safety net.

Seeing how Ms.Tuohy took Big Mike in and cared for him with unconditional love, makes me look at my mother and see how extraordinary she truly is. She's the one who makes me feel comfortable in actually taking the extra step in following my dreams. She's the one who I know 1 can depend on no matter what obstacles I face. No matter what hardship's she might face she always keeps a smile on her face and a good head on her shoulders. One of the greatest things that I have learned from her is to be confident. To take pride in what you do and have confidence is something that will help you do anything to the greatest potential possible.

So, without a doubt my mother is someone who has played a major role in my success. She is the one who taught me everything I know. She is my mother, the single most important woman to me. It’s safe to say that have to thank her for everything, and that I love her with all my heart.
