My Biography Subject–Cousin Melissa


The person I chose to write my biography on is my cousin Melissa. The reason I chose to do so is because she has impacted my life in ways that no one will ever understand. The story I’m writing about her has to do with her struggle with a drug and alcohol addiction. She was able to overcome a lot of obstacles that people involved with those kinds of things usually can’t get away from. She is the sweetest, most kind hearted, generous person I know which is why I look up to her so much. She would go out of her way and bend over backwards for anyone before doing anything to benefit herself. She truly exemplifies selflessness in every aspect of her life. She has been clean from everything for a little over 3 years and is now engaged to be married to the love of her life. God plays an important role in Melissa’s life because without him she never would have been able to do it. She loves to the fullest and he comes first. Melissa moved me into college last year and left me with the best advice I’ve ever gotten. She is one of my best friends in the entire world and she is my role model.

About Daily Inspiration

My name is Alexandra Mortallaro but most people call me Alex. I'm from Kansas City, Missouri and I have the greatest family on earth. I'm a sophomore at the University of Northwest Missouri State University. The only organization I'm involved in currently is Phi Mu and I have absolutely loved every minute of it since I joined! My major is Political Science and my minor is Criminal Justice. I'm a firm believer in following your dreams and doing whatever you put your mind to. One of my dreams after finishing my undergrad is to score outrageously high on the LSAT and get accepted into a great law school somewhere in Los Angeles. After that my dreams are infinte and you'd laugh at me if you heard them! In my spare time, when i'm not hanging out with friends or family, you can usually find me on pinterest or twitter. My favorite topic to search on Pinterest is quotes because it can be extremely uplifting at times when you need it most which is why I chose to write my blog on Inspiration. I truly deem inspirational quotes one of the best ways to get yourself out of a "funk" and back into doing what you love. If I can make at least one person's day by doing something so simple as posting something inspirational then hey I must be doing something right!

  1. This is awesome! I bet your paper was very inspirational! Three years is an amazing time to be sober, I know this because my dad is an alcoholic. To be clean for three years shows how strong she is and that she can overcome anything! She sounds like a great topic and Im happy that everything in her life is going to great!
