After watching the â€śPeople Like Usâ€? movie, the one person that influenced me the most was the mother of three boys who was clearly living below poverty. She said that she grew up poor, and that she knew that she was never going to go anywhere in life, and that she said she couldnâ€™t change how her life played out. I completely disagree with her statement about how she lived her life. People are able to change for the better and that their family histories shouldnâ€™t affect how someone should live out their own lives. For example, her own son knew that he wanted to go somewhere far in life because he couldnâ€™t handle how he was growing up. He said that he was planning on going to college and got plenty of awards in school. He has ambitions to become better unlike his mother.
Another example of someone who changed social classes is my father. He grew up without a father, and had to grow up in a small one bedroom house with his mother and his grandparents. Although his living conditions werenâ€™t the greatest, he still managed to get scholarships to college and is very successful today. He said that he didnâ€™t want to grow up and do nothing in life. He took responsibility for his actions and changed his life. He didnâ€™t let anyone get him down like the lady did in the movie.
