My first Inspiration to how I live my life is Green street, Otherwise known as Hooligans. When I first watched the film I loved it, it wasn’t until the second time I watched it that it made me think. There is a part in the film where a character called Pete shouts stand your ground, this made me realise that you have to stand for what you believe in and don’t let others lead you away from it.
Near the end of the film Pete dies and there is a monologue by another character called Matt, he talks about how Petes life taught him to stand his ground,but his death taught him when to walk away, this showed me that no matter how much you believe in something, sometimes you have to give it up or give up on people who keep trying to pull you away from that.
The film made me think, you can’t go in the past and change things but you can live a brighter future and lead on in remembrance of everyone who has ever helped you or been there for you.
The second thing that has inspired me a lot during my first year of University are the Coventry Cougars. They have inspired me to try everything at least once, after spending the year with them its like having a mini family that are there for you no matter what.
They have taught me that you only live once, and if you try everything once you find that you can do things that you didn’t know you could do, you can enjoy new things and you can build up your self-confidence. Without them I think I wouldn’t be as confident with myself as I am now and I would never think to try to live life like everyday is my last.
Another person in my life that has inspired me since I was a little girl is my mother, she has always encouraged me to follow my dreams, study what I want and try to get every experience out of life that I can.She is there to back me up on all my decisions whether they are good or bad, she lets me make them. She is always there to give me advice and she inspired me to follow my love of media and helped me choose the right university in the right city.
