Personal Narrative: Life Lessons In My Life

Ever since the age of three I have been an older brother. Now sixteen years later, I have six beautiful little sisters. I am the only son of all my mother 's children. Being a brother has taught me so many life lessons that it is hard to tell where they start and "end". These life lessons have taken over my outlook on life and the way I pursue it.

As stated before I was the Vice-President of my senior class and because of that I would have to help plan events and spread the word. So after coming up with an idea and it being approved we (the student council) would make poster signs. After the signs were up, I would go from class to class, for about a week, for each event and sell tickets. If there was any questions, I would answer them there on the spot, to clear any uneasiness. I have also introduced the CMSD Board members at a union meeting, as well as the "world renowned robotics team" at Rhodes.
