My mother deserves the award of best mentor, because of her character as a woman. She puts God first, and has the capacity to balance her work, family, and hobbies. She never gives up, and continues to dream, and go after her dreams. My mother refuses to be categorized by society, in other words, she does not let the world tell her who she is, what she should do, or who to be in life. She believes that all things are possible, and that what she does for others, God will do for her. Most importantly she teaches me these principles, and believes this for everyone, that no one should allow himself or herself to be labeled in society, but to believe that all things are truly possible. In our society it is hard to find a person with these aspects, but my mother has all theses attributes.
In addition, she deserves the award of best mentor, because of her character as a mother. My mother is a strong woman, in her profession as a businesswoman and as a mother. She has a strong nurturing and caring spirit. There were times when I felt my entire life crashing down before me, and I felt like all odds were against me. My mother was always compassionate, understanding, and encouraging, ensuring me things would be better. She always would tell me what I needed to do on my part to change, so that I could see things start to get better, and continue, to increase in my life. Although my mother understood the troubles that I was battling, she never let me off easy, and it was in her disciplining me that I learned to be strong, and to never give up.
My mother has kept a good attitude, and perspective in life, about herself, and me. My mother has, had to endure through an enormous amount of hardship, and difficulty in her life. However when times were difficult she endured. She did not become dismayed; she kept a positive attitude, and worked harder.

However her opinion made sense, and helped to shape my thoughts, and views about myself, for example how to be a sophisticated young lady, and how to carry myself appropriately. There are many mothers that are not as concerned about how their children present themselves in society, that’s why I know that my mother cares about me, and that makes her an excellent mother, and role model.
In conclusion, it is not just always what you do, that makes you an excellent mother, but it is who you are as a person.
