Personal Essay: Person who has influenced me. The person who has had the most influence on me would have to be my sister. I think she has influenced me to do better in life and keep on track because I have seen how she has struggled with high school and Boys. She hasn’t learned from her mistakes but I have. My sister can be my best friend or my enemy. We fight all the time but we get past that. I think seeing her Struggle with school has pushed me to keep good grades and do well in school. She has put a lot of stress on my mom and dad and I Don’t want to do the same. That would hurt my mom and dad too much. They also want to see me do well in school. My sister has had a lot of scares and drama with graduation. Seeing people; more or less her “friends”; tell her she is not going to graduate really puts me down. Cause I know if she pushes through she can do it. We just talked about it the other day and She IS going to graduate with the class of 2012. She proved everyone wrong and that makes me proud. My sister and I have been through a lot. I think when we got a lot closer when we got in our car wreck because that could have been the last time we ever spoke to each other. God was definitely on our side and said it’s not their time to go, and I am glad.
I am very proud to call her my sister because with out her I would not have a person to look up to, and a person to learn from. If it werenâ€™t for her I would be off track and not be as respectful to my parents as I am. She has taught me to never give up and to never let anyone bring me down. If I ever need anyone to talk to I know my sister will always be there. Most kids arenâ€™t lucky enough to have an older sibling to look up to and to learn from.
