Someone who inspires me is my mom because she works hard at everything, and she is just a really great person. She is always smiling, positive and kind towards everyone. One thing that I love that my mom does is when we go out to eat or when we go anywhere; she addresses the workers by their names. It tends to make people happy because it is not dehumanizing, and employees go through many such situations with customers, guests, etc. This example is just one way my mom inspires me.
