The One And Only Mary Harris
by Matthew | March 24, 2020
My learning coach is my mother, Mary H. She is a very gifted and talented young woman, who has so much to offer to her family and friends. She supports others when they need support most, she pushes herself beyond her own boundaries, and absolutely never gives up. I love my mother because she has always been there for me, whether it was the good times or the bad times, the times I needed her support or the times I didn't. Sure, she can most certainly drive you nuts sometimes, but I have always been drawn to the strange randomness of human nature. She is incredibly capable, and can be absolutely outstanding in her multiple skill sets, most notorious and most notably her skills in acting and teaching. I have always been an enormous film buff since I was very little. I began watching films at a very young age, which was good, since it allowed me to become fascinated with filmography very very early. For me, it was like love at first sight. Everything about film struck me like a lightning bolt to the head, racing my brain with questions and imaginative creativity. Even though I believe most of that passion drives from myself, I may not have become like this if it weren't for my mother, because several years before I was born, she was an 80s teenager practicing her Best Actress Academy Award acceptance speech in her bathroom mirror. She has always had that spark in her, and you can see her release the passion burning inside her when she acts. She is also very passionate about teaching, most likely even more passionate about teaching rather than acting. She loves making a difference in the world, and I think that's not only her biggest goal, but as well as her greatest achievement.
