My Biggest Influence
My sister, Isha, and I are nine years apart in age; I’ve looked up to her my entire life. When I was younger, all I wanted to do was be around her. I remember how I would always follow her everywhere, and there wasn’t a second in the day when I would leave her alone. To me, she was my best friend. Although I always bothered her and was probably the most annoying little sister ever, whenever I needed anything I went to her and she helped me without any objection.

Her leaving made me realize exactly how much I was taking her for granted and also made me become a much more responsible person. My sister is one of the most selfless people I’ve met. Everything she did was to make sure that my parents weren’t stressed about anything involving me or our house, and I definitely picked that up.

My sister is probably the most influential person in my life, and I'm so glad that I have her as a role model to look up to. Now when she visits, she doesn’t have to worry about anything; all she has to do is have fun. I’m so glad that she taught me about how important it is to be selfless and responsible, even if she wasn’t actually trying
