As weird as it may sound my mother has had the most influence on me.You should rewrite this first sentence. My suggestion is to make it more formal. And if you're not going to do that then at least change "the most influence on me" to "influenced me the most" or something.
I know that many people
who find their mothers to be influential would be femalesI would suggest not putting random opinions in here. Why? Well, how do you know that most people who say their mothers are influential are women? You don't so don't put this here unless you absolutely know. Also if you're not going to change that then at least change that whole sentence to read: "It seems that many women say their mother is the most influential person in their lives." , but tend to have a different approach on this. Comma splices are a no-no. Start a new sentence and say "though (with a following comma)" instead of "but."
hard workwork ethic
determinationNow, you may not think that the word "drive" is better than determination but, to me, it is. So, I would suggest that you replace the word "determination" with "drive."
me and my brotherNo. It is "my brother and me."
a better life
than what she had, truly is influential to meOh-ho no. I would say "a better life than hers is truly influential to me."
. My mother is a single parent of
two boys, me and my older brother.Ahem. Last time I checked an older brother (no matter the age, really) is a boy. So then, since you're a guy, your two little brothers are guys and your older brother is a guy...that makes four guys. Although my father is still around from time to time, he has never financially supported me or my brother throughout our lives.Put this: "Although, my father is still present he has never provided for my family financially."
Whenever he would come home from work

Now that I'm
old enoughmature enough
to realize how much my mother has done for
me and my brothermy brother and me
she's someone I
truly look up to. WHY? maybe you would like to put in an example of how she has done this to expand your point.
Her hard work throughout the years to support us,
putting up with"tolerating" the fights me and my brother would haveseems childish (like you haven't matured and that you're not ready to go to college...rewrite it.)
, and taking care of us as a single parent.WOW, this sentence is a fragment. Rewrite it but make a point with it within the first part of the sentence

my mind how she was able to pull all of this off

throughout my life I
couldn'tno contractions. change to "could not"
stand her at times due to a few reasons. Reasons such as how she would always be on my brother'

How she would always find the littlest things to complain to me about

should listen to her because of
all she has done for meher sacrifice
. I didn't realize how much she has provided for me and my brother until the summer of my Junior year, when i had the experience of working for the first time. Each week i would work for about 35-40 hours during the summer, which allowed me to make more than enough to support myself and not having the need to depend on my mother as much as i used to. The previous paragraph doesn't seem to make much of a point....I think you should find a better topic because if you use this topic you're going to have to work a lot more. I suggest using more examples. You should also get rid of useless sentences and condense your writing (shorter is better for college essays...but not too short) In this case, you are trying to expand a topic that would make a very short, short answer.
She influenced me to become a better man I've been thinking you were a chick this whole entire time!!!
my father wasis your dad dead? if not then I would say "is" instead of "was."
, to work hard in life, and never give up even when there are many obstacles
to overcome "hindering my passage" = sounds a lot better
. Her life goal was to give
me and my brothermy brother and me
a life she never had , and now my life goal is to give my mother a life my
grandparentswhat do you mean by this? rewrite it.
never had.oooh hey, you noticed it too.
My last sentence "Her life goal was to give me and my brother a life she never had , and now my life goal is to give my mother a life my grandparents never had." i feel is a bit confusing, and need help on wording it better so that it would make a better impact on the reader since it is the last sentence to my essay. Basically what I'm trying to say is that i want to give my mom a better life when she gets older, one that my grandparents never got to experience. (they're alive)
I would rewrite it and well use more examples.....hmm just good luuuck.
