Who inspires me?

If I had to pick one person, that I can say I hope that's me someday, it would be my mom. She's always there for me when I need her and can count on her to be and she always has the right things to say. I can talk to her about anyting and can always count on her advice. I get along so easily with my mom because I can trust her with all my secrets or problems and then I don't have to hide anything from her. I hope someday when I have kids they can confide in me the way I do in my mom.

Erik Weihenmayer

Erik Weihenmayer is huge inspiration! Most people can't even climb Mt. Everest with the use of eyes, and he managed to do it while being blind. If that doesn't inspire you then I don't know what does. Because Erik sumited he has erased limitations that we think blind people are unable to meet. He has not only given the blind more goals and self confidence, but he has also given the people with sight more credit for the blind and made us realize that the boundries between those with sight and those without it may not even exist. Erik Weihenmayer made people with sight see clearly about those that are blind!

Mt. Everest

This collage of pictures represents the friendship, love, and passion of Erik Weihenmayer's expedition up Mt. Everest. Even in his book Erik didn't focus on his accomplishment in clibing Mt. Everest whith the disability of being blind; he focused more on the support he had from all his friends.

A Spider, or a Wasp?

Spiders are horrible, scary creatures. Wasps aren't much better but if I had to choose one, it would definately be a wasp. Some interesting facts about wasps, the digger wasp to be specific, is that 1. they live independently, unlike other wasps that live in colonies. 2. Some of these wasps are one inch long and completely black with iridescent blue wings. And 3. As implied by their names, these wasps live in the ground.
