Alejandra is my mother. As a mother she is great because she works hard to provide for my family. Alejandra keeps a neat house and keeps us organized. She supports us with school and is always there.

My mother inspires me to help people and to get a good education. It’s important to help people because it is important to be kind. When you are kind to others, people are kind in return. It’s also important to get a good education because you are able to grow and have a secure future. Having security can mean you can help others too. My mother is very important to me. She is my hero.
