Growing up in the United States of America, especially in suburban New York, there has always been a certain definition of what success by money and material possesions, including the kind of car that they drive and how big their house is. But what truly makes a person successful? In examing this thought I have realized that tre success is when a person is happy and completely content with the lifestlye they have chosen and the benefits they receive within themselves by what they do. One person who fits the true definition of success is mother Teresa, a women who lived in Calcutta and devoted her life to the poorest of the poor, the suffuering and the dying.

Mother Teresa leardned about charity from her mother & father who never turned away from those in need whether seeking food, shelter, clothing, or even money. Her famalies life changed when her father died unexpectedly in 1917. The family was left with little money and the church became a very important part ot their lives. Mother Teresa was influenenced by the pastor of her church, Father Jambren Kovic. This preist introduced here to the work being done by missionaries in India. In 1928 Mother teresa decided to follow the feelings in her heart and join the Loreto order of nuns who would enable her to reach Bengal and start her work. She began her journey by traveling to Rathfarman in Ireland and after a very short time she was sent to Loredo Novitiate in Darjeeling, India.
