Who are the women you admire most and why? MAMA LOURDES. I really admire my Mama. She really made things possible with us. She is a strong woman and very responsible. Though she was not a graduate in college and never even finished elementary years, but she did her very best so that I could finish college. It was a tough time growing up poor and always in need but she made things easier for us. She did hard labor just to put delicious food on our table every now and then while we were growing up! She is the best mom there is!
