I think that sports players (mostly football, basketball and baseball players) have the biggest impact on children. As they grow up, many children play sports, and most of them admire a certain athlete that plays that same sport. For me, when I was growing up, A.J. Hawk, for the Ohio State Buckeyes, was the athlete I looked up too. He was a great linebacker, a good football player in general and every time I played football, I pretended to be him. With determination and practice, many of these kids want to be like these sports players, and some end up succeeding. Some plays different sports year round so that they can play the sports that they enjoy. In addition, some of the children try to imagine that they are their favorite player, during a game.

A movie that has influenced me is 1994 classic, The Shawshank Redemption, with Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. This movie influenced me to always have hope, even when you are in the worse place possible, or if you're just having a bad day. More people accomplish small victories in their life than big challenges. So, from this movie, I learned to always have hope regardless of the situation and how bad it is. It's hope that drives the soul, and makes the person continue to move on. This have helped me in my voyage in this life, and will continue to aide me as I continue my journey
