Essential Questions
1. What do you value most in life? I value my friends and family the most. They are the most supportive people I could ask for. In fact I don’t have friends because they are all family.
2. Who are the people that influence you the most in your life? Many people influence me. In fashion, style, and manners Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly are at the top. Spiritually would be my dad and Tim Keller (he was my dad’s youth pastor). My mom also greatly influences me because I know I can tell her anything. Then of course there are my friends.
3. What is life’s greatest lesson? Take time to spend time with friends and family.
