The Past, The Present, The Future: The Life Of Mikey Gavrincea
Part 1: My Life In 100 Words
“Do well in school and sports.” That sums up my life. My parents divorced early. I was raised by my lone mother for most of my life. Even so, I had everything I needed, except half of my mother.
I’m 14 now, with an amazing stepdad and a baby just around the corner. Doing well in school and sports, good friends, and supporting parents. I’ve got everything I need.
All there is now, is the future. I plan to be an engineer or programmer and the best older brother ever. Even so, the future is full of countless unexpected surprises.

Part 3: My Music
I never had the connection with music as a young child. I honestly have a bad moment associated with it. However, as I got into my teens I started getting closer to music. This specific song I discovered recently. Whenever I hear it I feel like I can accomplish anything. When I hear this song, wether I’m running or just feeling down, it lifts my spirits and helps me push through it. This song is currently my favorite because it motivates me.

Part 6: People Who Inspire Me
1. My mom:
My mom raised alone for most life. She goes to sleep late at night and wakes up early morning to go to work. All my life she has fought for what is best for me no matter the consequences. Even though I didn’t have a dad growing up, it didn’t feel like it. She managed to do the impossible of being both a mom and a dad for me. She worked hard and long to make me feel like a normal kid. I never missed out on any toys, clothes, or food that a kid with two parents had. The only thing I was missing was half of my mom, that half that was working.
2. Roger Federer
Roger Federer was and still is one of the best tennis players in history. However, the thing that made him stand out from the rest wasn’t his athleticism. His sportsmanship is what separated him from the rest. He never gets mad, and never shows his excitement. He is always polite and doesn’t let his anger get the best of him. He is the most modest tennis player out there and that’s what let him get to the top. He was always able to keep his cool and regain control of the match, never letting his emotions affect his game. He has an extremely high number of fans because of his sportsmanship. Many admire his modesty and ability to control his emotions which most sports players don’t always have full control of. I admire Federer for the same reason, and hope to be able to follow in his footsteps of kindness, modesty, and sportsmanship.
3. Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr., everyone knows his name and what he did. However, to many he is also an inspiration for change of the better, modesty, kindness, and non-violence. An historic figure in the Civil Rights Movement, I admire Mr. King for the same reason as others. I attempt to follow in his footsteps of non-violence. I believe that the way to solve problems in this world can be achieved in a non-violent way.
