There were constant challenges growing up in a household with five girls. Everyone in the house has different personalities. My oldest sister always tries to make things possible for us, going out of her way to teach us valuable lessons. Once, a lesson was learned a little too late. My sister would always pretend to jump over the banister in our house. She would lean over it and hang, holding on to the rail. One day, she accidently let go and fell down one whole floor. If it were not for the desk in the way, she could have died. That was pretty scary for me, but there were not any severe injuries. She knocked her two front teeth out and had to get them replaced. My second oldest sister tries to set a good example for us. She is smart and talented. She is the one who encouraged me to become a cheerleader and to start playing the trumpet, two things I still enjoy doing today. She is currently a junior at the University of North Carolina, a college I hope to attend when I graduate from high school. My third oldest sister always helps me, and keeps me out of trouble. My twin sister, although only older than me by four minutes, is always there for me. She has become my best friend over the years, and I think she has the biggest influence on me.
