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.
