In my life I have had many experiences with The Elderly. My Grandmother who is in her 70’s has taught me a lot about life. She has a lot of good advice that she likes to share with me, such as never stopping on the train tracks with your car and to never use your Iphone before you go to bed or it will take you longer to fall asleep because of the light. My Grandma has always been a big inspiration in my life she not only offers me very positive and useful life advice but, she was always positive and taught me to live life to the fullest and, to always respect people.

She is a very strong and intelligent elderly woman who has taught me a lot about having a strict mindset, going for what I want in life, never giving up. She had lost her husband (My Grandpa) in 1996 before I was born and, even though she went through such a tough experience she is still a confident and strong minded person. She has a good life with a lot of grandchildren and, even though she lives alone she is never alone, because she is always doing activities like participating in her local community elderly citizens group and, doing yoga and hanging out with friends and, my cousins always visit her.

She is an incredibly strong elderly woman now, who is confident and, is not afraid of anything even though her house was burglarized 8+ times, she continues to have no fear and, she is very strong and confident in herself and, her decisions. Although she is very intelligent and strong willed she has no knowledge of advanced technology and, so this is something that I could offer to help her with and, have in the past when she got a laptop for the first time. My Grandmother is a very big part of my life and she has inspired me so much and, when I told her I was teaching myself difficult languages like; Japanese and Korean. She brought me a writing board to write different characters down to learn the different strokes. My Grandma is a very important person in my life and, one thing she has taught me is to never give up and, to never let your dreams stay dreams. I hope to be as strong willed and as wise as my grandmother some
