Identity Formation:  

A study in human development. 
 

Is nature or nurture more impactful on your identity?  

Ms. Lazarides and Ms. Valle - A4 
 

 

Why is wisdom from others important? Well others widom can help in life like keeping
you trouble free, helping you educate yourself, better life choices, and you don’t repeat
past decisions. Well from my experience I was about to do something wrong when my
dad gave me some wisdom and told me not to do it. I did it and got grounded for a
month. So now I no longer repeat my past mistakes, and I use my elders wisdom to
keep me out of trouble.

With out wisdom people will be in jail or juvenile detention. The people in there think
there going to get out and go get a good paying job to pay for what they did, well If you
went to either of those places they will go on to your permanent record. When you
apply for a job they check your permanent record. If you went to these places they will
reject you. So if your permanent record is not clean it can have a big impact on your
future life choice. For example if you want to work for the military they will reject you
like there is no tomorrow.

Wisdom can also help you in education. You gain wisdom from your teachers, and staff.
Some people want to be teachers when they grow up, well sometimes your teachers
can help you by giving you tips on how to run your classroom. If you do good in school
And stay out of trouble you can get a good paying job for your family. Sometimes your
teachers will evan give life lessons based on their past mistakes.

Wisdom can help you not repeat mistakes from the past, yours or a other person. For
example, my best friend tried to steal from a gas station and got caught. He had two pay
for the product and forty bucks, because the gas station man was super cool. His dad
gave him some wisdom and told him to stop. Two weeks later his brother tried the same
thing at a different gas station, his brother wanted him to do it, he almost did but then he
stoped. He realized it was not worth it to get caught.

There are many other ways wisdom helps you in your life like “life will bring you down,
but remember you can always find a way to get passed it”. This saying says that no
matter what kind of struggles come your way in life, you can always find a way to get
through it. This saying has helped me get through some tough times, like my dog just
died and when I thought of that saying it calmed me down a little. Well this are just
some things wisdom helps you with, but there are thousands of ways wisdom helps you
in life, what's yours?



E​ nglish Essay/ Draft 

Wisdom and experience of others can benefit you in a great amount of ways when the life ahead of you
comes. My step-father shares a great amount of his experience in life with me, and it helps me plenty in life. I
believe it’s important to listen to the wisdom from others because you can learn from their mistakes so you
don’t repeat them, you can have a better perspective from hearing someone else’s story, and it can help you in
your future goals.

Learning life lessons can help you with your future goals. I have always been taught life lessons because
they help you make smarter decisions in life so that you can succeed. One life lesson I have learned is to
always make smart decisions and don’t become too attached to other people. This is because I could end up in
the wrong crowd and my life could be destroyed because of the people I choose to hang out with. By learning
from my parents’ life lessons I won’t make multiple mistakes like they did.

​Knowing that I’m so privileged in life helps me have a better perspective on life by hearing about others
lives. Me being privileged lets me know that it is fine if my parents can’t buy me something that I want because
my parents give me everything I need. If I don’t receive something it is perfectly fine because there are people
in life that have nothing at all. I am so grateful for being so privileged and being able to have a roof over my
head. Every time I see a homeless person it reminds me that I should always be grateful because I have
everything I need.

Learning from your mistakes or other peoples mistakes helps you so that you don’t make them again. Being
prepared helps me know what to do in any situation. My parents are always telling me stories about their past
and what they could have done to prevent things from happening. When I’m in the car sometimes I ask
questions about what do I do if I end up in an accident and this happens or what things you need in order to
afford a car and insurance. This all prepares me so that I know what to do in my future.

These three things have helped me a great amount in life so far. I am grateful that I have parents to tell me
about their past experiences to make sure I don’t make the same mistakes they did. Most people don’t even
have parents to do things like that for them. The fact that I have been taught life lessons, to know I’m
privileged, and to be prepared for the future, are some of the best things to have in life.

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom”. Without you knowing who you are, you
would stay confused or not know where you are going. A new human being will always
start off with some wisdom. It is important for me to learn from my father's wisdom and
experiences because he told me to work hard, be motivated, and have goals in order to
have a better life.

Also, working hard will eventually get you somewhere. I was told working will help you
achieve something you want to do. The better you get at something you can be the best
you could be. Always try to work to the full on your ability. I was told nothing in this world
is free and you have to work for it.

For instance, motivation is the biggest key to success. Always stay motivated because
something good may happen. Keeping your head up and never quitting is going to help
yourself in the long run. I was told to stay motivated and focusing because your future will
be bright.

Before setting a goal and then achieving it is an accomplishment. Wanting to go to college
by studying hard and maintaining good grades. I want to become a basketball player or a
chef, which means I have to keep good grades and focus a lot.

The things that my father taught me through his wisdom is to work hard,be motivated, and
have goals in order to have a successful life. Without these things my life would be
miserable. I was taught to try and become better than my parents. Me as a teenager, I will
fulfill my goals to become a successful human being. The wisdom that I was taught was to
become a successful person. So, what I’m going to do is do what I was told. I would not
only become a better person, but a successful human being.

Sitting on her bed with her sitting across from me, I see a young lady with long brown hair, brown eyes,
and a beautiful smile. I am lucky enough to call this person my cousin. She loves me and cares about me as
much as I care and love her. Most of her lovely characteristics like loving and caring were learned from the
world around her. I believe that nurture is most impactful on Yesenia because of her childhood, interaction with
others, and her life events.

Reason one, her childhood has defined her because she didn't grow up with her mom. It was hard for
her to grow up this way because she was not able to learn how a women is a women through a female. That
caused her to become a woman herself and a mother figure to her younger brother. While she was growing up
I would always see her in my house learning house chorus from watching my mom. In conclusion, my cousin
had to grow up much faster than other people her age due to the separation of her parents.

furthermore, Interacting with others helps her understand how people view her. An example can be
whenever I go over to her house, she will ask me if her face is clearing up. She will also ask her friends if her fit
looks good or bad. With their opinion, she can decide whether to change how she looks or stay the same.
Asking these kind of questions makes her feel secure that she won’t be judged by the unknown people around
her. To sum it up, she likes to know how people see her as a person and know whether she should change her
look.

Finally, life events have illustrated how she has had setbacks from transferring from a teen to an adult.
One of the most impactful setbacks in her life is not being able to go to Mexico for 9 years. Not being able to go
to Mexico for a vacation in a long time has led her to become very stressed and distracted. This has prevented
her from learning how to drive a car. She tells me all the time that she wants to learn how to drive, but has too
much things going on in her life. All in all my cousin has had setbacks in her life, but not going to Mexico has
been her biggest setback, that affects her ability to learn.

To wrap up this essay I would like to summaries her life story. Out of the two choices of nature and
nurture, nurture is the one that most defines my cousin. Her childhood consisted of only having one parent
around, which led her to be more independent and more women like. Interacting with others allows her to see
how people look upon her. If she feels like she looks unpresentable, she will ask friends or family for their
opinion. Life events have also defined her. One of the events that have most impacted her is not going to
Mexico. Not going to Mexico has led her to not learn how to drive a car.

This essay is very important to me. I have learned more about her even if I have known her for my
whole life. Learning more about her has given me an idea of how she will feel in certain situations and how she
will go about them. I can use this knowledge to help her out of dark times and connect with her more. Hopefully
you were able to understand my cousin, Yesenia more even if you have never meet her before. I will leave you
with a challenge of writing a story about someone you admire and to share it with others.

You have heard a question before and you answer it. Someone will asks if you’re ok? How are
you? How was your day? You also think right away of how to react to that question. It all comes
from you and your mind, well more like your brain you know what I mean. You are from nature,
your mind is from nature. Nature has influenced you and your mind, like everyone else. These
are 3 reasons why nature is most impactful on me and you. It’s from the mind, it’s how you or
the person feels, and it’s what you think.

My first reason is it’s from your mind and your thoughts. In your mind, you ask yourself or
someone else asks you things. You think of things, like how you imagine things. I always
imaginate, and imaginating from your mind is from nature. You can also imaginate about a
question you or someone else has. I imaginate all the time, I’m sure you do too. You think about
a question, so you think about how to reply to it. You react by thinking, that’s what you would
naturally do. All the time I think about things, such as writing. I write a lot, so I think a lot about
what I write.

My second reason is about how you or the other person feels about something. How you feel
about a question depends on thinking about it. Your mind reacts in different ways, it could feel
good, bad, or you just don’t know. Based on the question you have, how you react depends on
how you feel. I go through it all the time, like writing this essay. I’m thinking about how to explain
myself with my writing. I feel good about what I’m writing, so I’ve reacted feeling good about my
writing. Even if it’s not a question, like something that has happened. Depending on what you’ve
heard or saw, you get a feeling in your mind about it.

My last reason is from what you or the other person thinks about something. When interviewed,
you naturally hear it and think about it. You and I think about different things all the time,
sometimes it could lead to imaginating. From your opinion, your mind, and it’s all from nature. I
am doing this right now, naturally having to think about what to write for this essay. Unless I was
a stubborn person and thought that nothing mattered, which is not true. What you naturally do is
think, react, and feel some kind of way.

These are the reasons is why nature is most impactful on me. It’s from the mind, it’s how you
or someone else feels, and it’s what you think. I have depended on my mind my whole life,
without it I would be one clueless person. From when you were a baby all the way until now, you
have thought about whatever you have thought about. Nature is around you, you come from
nature, your body, and your mind. This is why nature is and will be most impactful on me or you.

Why do you think it is important for children to learn from their elders? Here are some reasons
why it is important. Wise people can help you with many things, like learning from your mistakes,
improving yourself, and having a better life in general. Can you think of any other good reasons why it
is important? Here are the ideas I came up with in more detail.

The older generation can help the younger generation by teaching them how to learn from their
mistakes and to not make any more mistakes. Their elders have already been through a lot of the
mistake the child has made. So they know how to fix them and help them learn from them. They can
also help them prevent from making big mistakes like that. Those are some of the ways they can help
the younger generation learn from their mistakes and not make any more.

Elders can help the younger generation improve themselves too because, they know how to
help you improve yourself since they had to improve themselves when they were your age too. Just
like how my friend taught be how to play Counter Strike: Global Offensive and how to use better
communication for it. Or like when I taught some of the kids I babysit how to play Minecraft and other
video games. Those are some of the ways elders can help the younger generation improve
themselves.

Elders can also help children have a better life overall. Older people are usually smart and can
help the children make good life decisions. Since they already lived for a long time they can help the
children have a good family, a good house, a stable income, etc.. They can also help them by making
sure their life will be better than their past life. Those are some of the reasons how they can help the
new generation have a better life.

It is important for people to learn from their elders because. People can learn from their
mistakes, they can help you improve in anything, and show you how to have a better life than them.
Since they can do that the new generations can have a better life than they did. So then children can
have a better life and help others. Maybe a child might come up with a cure to cancer, or a solution to
give everyone food everyday and stuff like that.

If you could see where someone comes from and their upbringing, you wouldn't be quick to
judge them. I did an interview on my mother's childhood to learn about what she did, and what she
was taught as a child. I believe nurture is most impactful on my mother because she grew up in a way
that made her independent. Nurture impacted my mom because she grew up in Pensacola, Florida,
she was raised by her mom, dad, and grandma, and was taught a lot of life lessons.

My mother grew up in Pensacola, Florida, this impacted her in many ways. My mom growing
up in Pensacola was a big impact on her life because that's where she learned life in the real world.
That’s where she became Latoya. She became independent, intelligent, and a careless person, and
she still is all of those things today. My mother loves to take good care of her kids. One time my mom
was a little short on money from her paycheck, yet she still managed to get my brother the toy he
wanted. She likes making us happy and smile even when times are rough. She would have hard
times and still make sure everyone is good before her. This is how growing up in Pensacola was an
impact on my mom’s life.

My mom was raised in a way that showed her life. She was raised by her mother, father, and
most importantly, her grandmother. They raised her and all of the other children the same way, to be
equal. They were raised to be good people and to give more than they get. She always gives away
the things that we don’t need to people who needs it most. My mother will try to do anything to help
others get through tough times. She feeds and helps homeless people and always gave away all of
our old toys and clothes to people in need or couldn't afford it.

She was taught so many different things. My mother was taught how to cook, clean, do good in
school, and to do things on her own. So doesn’t have to depend on people when she is older. Aslo
how to take good care of herself. My mom stayed in school and graduated from college. Me, my
sister, and brother would cook our family a meal every once in a while. We also would try our best to
keep the house clean the way she likes it. Bring good grades home and that lets her know that she is
doing a great job at being a mother.

That is why I believe nurture is most most impactful on my mother because she grew up
in her own intelligent way that made her independent. This is important to me because my mom
is a representation of a leader and that’s how I want to be now and keep that with me when im older.
That’s why I feel nurture is impactful on my mother because she is a careless, independent, and
intelligent women.



“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.” The guy that
shares his wisdom with people is the fool because he/she did the bad stuff and makes
sure no one makes the mistake they made. I believe that it's important to learn from others
because so you won't make the mistake they did, so you can have a job in the future, and
so you won't hang out with the wrong crowd.

So one reason you should listen to people's wisdom is because so you won't be as
misguided as they did.
The reasons for that is, So you won't end up like a bum, plus thereś a lot of homeless kids
and adults on the street, and this one time ms.l always made sure I didn't make a mistake
so I don't make mistakes later in the future. This Last reason is when I was a kid, my mom
told me if I fail a grade i'm going to live with my dad so I trying not to make mistakes now.

Another reason, you should listen to people's wisdom is because so you can get a job in
the future. The reasons for that is so you can be prepared in life, is because a lot of
people are on the street begging and pleading, and ms.l told me that her husband wouldn't
meet up with her if he didn´t know how to spell. This last reason is when I was little my
mom and dad told to go to college, get a career, and get a house.

Final reason you should listen to people's wisdom is because so you won't hang out with
the wrong people. The reasons for that is so you can have a good life and not go to jail, is
because some kids hang with bad people and sometimes go to jail, and ms.l takes me
from people who distracts me from my work, or other things.

So at the end, I still think that people share their wisdom with other people so they don't
end up like they did in their past.the importance of wisdom is that people should listen to
elderly or people whoś been through hard stuff in their life. In collusion to make sure you
don't end up like other people who do bad stuff make sure you don't hang with the wrong
crowd.

I believe nature is the most impactful on Miss.Valle’s life because of the woman in her life 
 
 
Miss.Valle has learned from her sister's mistakes and she is a strong and willful woman. Also a daughter, a 
friend, a listener, a teacher, a love giver and an advice giver. She that she has a compassionate heart and she 
really care about helping others and the world. She was the “GOLDEN” child and she was because she would 
always have good grades and make things easier for her mum and one less trouble maker. 
 
 
Her accomplishments were astonishing she got her masters agree first and she pushed her limits even in her 
hardest moments. She would like to be remembered as someone who cared. She would like to be remembered as a 
kind human because everyone needs someone in their corner. The world doesn’t have to be so cruel. She has been 
a firm believer of speaking things into existence and feel as though if I live a positive life, positive things would 
happen. So she would like to be remembered as that person who was always positive and always there no matter 
what. Loyalty is very important to her.  
 
Her grandma has had the biggest impact her my life. When she was growing up, her parents used to work 2-3 
jobs to make sure my sisters and I never went without. Often times, They spent their mornings and afternoons 
with grandma. She would make them all breakfast in the morning before school and the bus would drop us off 
at the house after school. She always greeted them with a smile and a warm meal, followed by a blessing. She 
always made sure they did all their homework before they were allowed to play any games. Today, her grandma 
lives with her mother and she makes sure to call her everyday and remind her of how thankful I am for the  
impact she has made and continues to make in her life. 
 
This is why I like Ms.Valle she is so smart,independent,pretty,caring and life changing I consider Miss.Valle 
who she is because her family made her made her who she is today. 
 

 

“Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love, and fearless.” I
chose to write about my mom and how she taught me her wisdom and how she told me
about the many experiences she has gone through in her lifetime. I believe that learning
from family is very important because it helps you to learn from their advice, learn from
mistakes, and improve for the future.

The three things that my mom taught me where to learn from her advice, learn from her
mistakes, and improve yourself for yourself for your future. My mom has given me much
information over the years that I have been active. If I had listened to everything that she
has taught me, I would be a millionaire right now. She told me to be very dedicated in
everything that I do and not to give up what I believed to be right. If I could go back and
tell my younger self one thing to do it would be to listen to my mom.

My mom has made many mistakes in her lifetime and many of them, she has told me
many of them, and I have learned from her. She has taught me from her mistakes, not to
let people walk over me and to be compassionate to be loving and kind. She wishes that
she could go back and tell my younger self-anything it would be to listen to my mom more.

My mom is the kind of person that is always looking forward to the future and is making
adjustments to make it better than what it would have been. She tells us to do the same
and to always plan for the future and to have a backup plan on top of the backup plan
because life doesn’t go the way that you want to go.

It is imperative to learn from family because it helps you to learn from their advice, learn
from mistakes, and improve for the future. It is essential to listen to people who are trying
to help you, and you should take what they are saying to heart. After telling you all of this,
I believe that you all could listen to the people that are trying to help you instead of
pushing them away.

How would you feel if you were being led in the wrong direction? Good advice can come in handy most
of the times. Especially if you’re helping someone. I believe it is important to learn from others so you don't go
in the wrong direction, you could learn from them, and pass the good advice they said onto other people.

It’s important to learn from the experience of others because it would be helpful to learn from peers.
You can learn from peers in ways you wouldn't learn from someone else. An example could be a person
asking you for help, and you give them advice about that problem. If a person ask them for help on the same
problem they had they can say the same thing you said. I would know because I had this happen to me before.
One time when I was in school, my mom gave me advice, and I said the same thing she said to people around
me. Knowing that advice you gave a person is going around to everybody else can make you feel good. It
could make you feel like you accomplished something.

Learning from others could be a good thing so you wouldn’t make the same mistakes. If you’re about to
do something and a friend tells you not to do it because they made the same mistake, then that’s coming from
personal experience. A personal experience I had was when I was at school, and I had a disagreement with a
student. We stopped being friends for some reason, and the teacher took me outside to talk to me. I learned
from her that everybody isn’t going to be your friend. These are some of the ways you can learn from others.

Passing the good advice that you are given unto others is a good thing. One reason would be because

it’s to help people, so they won’t make as many mistakes. An example would be the​ saying that goes

something like: " If you are the smartest person in the room then you are in the wrong room." this means if

you really are in the smartest person then why are you in that room?​ Maybe it could help more people if

they passed it around. You could tell a person some good advice, then they would probably tell somebody else

the same thing. q

Giving advice changes lives.

There are way you learn from older people these are reasons why should you listen.
Reasons why it is important to learn from someone with experience from older people.
because not to repeat their mistakes, self improvement. Also if you listen to others
wisdom, It will impact future generations.

One reason why you should learn from elders so you the same mistakes because so you
won’t end up like they did when they grew up so you can be better. Than you can learn
how to grow more sophisticated and. I remember when my dad told me not to do drugs
because it's not good for my health.

Another reason It helps self improvement. They tell you so you can be a better person
than they were when they were your age .Because they have already been through it
know they can teach you
to be successful. I remember told me he used to be a bad kid .He tells me how I have a
better chance of going to college and how I will have a better chance to succeed in life.

The last reason is that listening to the advice of older people impacts future generations.
They teach you how to gain manners.They also teach you how to be respectful to the
other elders. The elders teach you how to be a man and a lady in a proper way. I
remember when my dad told me that not to put my elbows on the table while i’m eating
but he never told me why.

So the reasons it is good to listen and learn to order people or elder’s so you won’t make
the same mistakes that they did when they were younger. It helps improve yourself and
become a better person.Also others wisdom for future generations.
The importance of listening to older and elders life lessons so you can be better than what
they were when you parents or grandparents were when they were your age.

So the reason i’m doing this so everyone can that it’s not a bad thing to listen to your
parents because they could tell you some good information on how you can be a better
person in life. Last the learning from elders help you succeed in life for your benefit.

Nurture has impacted Oriana the most because of her family. She always messes with their hair and take stuff from them but 
give them back when they realize it is not there, they would go up a high hill and hang out their and chill, they love Oriana for 
who she is and they miss her a lot and she misses them, she will always remember all the stuff they have done together because 

its was very fun to her and she wishes she could see them every day. 
 

She has also been impacted by her activities like playing on a boys basketball team was not as bad as she thought, she used to 
play basketball for 3 years on the boy’s basketball team when she was in Texas, but she quit since she twisted her ankle, when 
Oriana got on the team she thought the boys would mess around with her but they were being nice and treated her as everybody 

else was treated, basketball will always be her favorite sport. 
 

Her life experiences have also made her very tough because Oriana is from Texas and she loves it there because of the weather, 
she made a lot of friends there and most of her family lives there she have lived there most her life, but when her mom told her 
they was moving to Virginia she got very sad because Texas is where she lived most her life, she didn't want to move to Virginia 
because probably thought the schools here wouldn't be as great as Texas most of her friends mostly lived in Texas, if she had a 

choice to go live in Texas again she would very gladly say yes. 
 

Her relationship with her brothers are amazing, they used to play fight and play sports together, when Oriana would get home 
she would always prank them, she always thinks about them everyday of her life, Oriana would always take her brother red, 

white, and blue Jordans and she will always do that when she wants to. 
 

She went through a lot in Texas with her family and sports, but she always managed to pull through every step of the way, she 
loves Texas because of what she has been through in the past with her family and friends, she still text everybody everyday 
after school and still misses their faces in person. 
 
That is it for the interview with Oriana Cepeda, my name is Theo Isaac and I hope you have a great day. 

If you could see where someone comes from and their childhood they lived you
wouldn't be quick to judge them.I did an interview on my mother's childhood/life to she
what she did and was taught as a child.I believe nurture is most impactful on my mother
because she grew up in a way that made her independent.The reason is because of
where she grew up, how she was raised, and what she was taught.

My mother grew up in Pensacola, Florida. Her growing up in pensacola was a big
impact on her life because that's where she learned life in the real world where she
became Latoya. She became independent, intelligent, and a careless person and still
are all of those things till this day. My mom loves to take good care of her kids. She likes
making us happy and smile even when the times are rough. She would have hard times
and make sure everyone is good before her.

My mom was raised in a way that showed her life. She was raised by her mother,
father, and most important was her grandmother. They raised her and all of the other
children the same way to be equal.They were raised to be a good person and too give
more than get. She always gives away the things that we don’t need to people who
needs it most. My mother will try to do anything to help others get through tough times.
She feeds and helps homeless people and always gave away all of our old toys and
clothes to people in need or couldn't afford it.

She was taught so many different things. My mother was taught how to cook,
clean, do good in school, and to do things on her own. So doesn’t have to depend on
people when she is older. Aslo how to take good care of herself. My mom stayed in
school and graduated from college. Me, my sister, and brother would cook our family a
meal every once in a while. We also would try our best to keep the house clean the way
she likes it. Bring good grades home and that lets her know that she is doing a great job
at being a mother.

That is why I believe nurture is most most impactful on my mother because she
grew up in her own intelligent way that made her independent.This is important to me
because my mom is a representation of a leader and that’s how I want to be now and
keep that with me when im older.That’s why I think nurture is impactful on my mother
because she is a careless, independent, and intelligent women.



Many events can happen in your life, but that shouldn’t stop you. I know a lot of people who
gave up because so many events, but not my sister. My sister had her father pass away from
a biking accident, she grew up somewhat poor, she was bullied in school up until 7th grade. If
you have ever faced an event, than you would understand how difficult it is to go through
events that could affect your life to the extreme. I believe my sister was more impacted by her
nurturing because of life experiences, her childhood, and relationships with others.

Nurture was most impactful because some people who would have had a death in their
family would of been extremely affected by their death they would of gave up. My sister only
saw that as a chance to make him even more proud of her to show he taught her well. He
was the most important person to her every child needs their mom, dad, or anyone in their life
who cares deeply for them. She told me had cried for a very long time she told me she cried
for around two months, but then she told herself he wouldn’t her to cry that he would always
be there for her and look out for her. She later on after her father's death had the death of her
uncle, which having another death in the family shortly after the other that could really affect
anybody no matter who you are. My sister was 8 years old when her father died and for her to
think the way she did was extraordinary because she was so young. This is an act of nurture
because her father taught her to think this way.

Nurture was also more impactful because she also grew up poor not to the point they
were living on the streets but they had trouble financing . She was never really treated well
with the other kids for this reason she was told often she smelled, or her clothes weren’t
clean, well they couldn’t take showers all the time because sometimes they couldn’t pay the
water bill sometimes. Many people in her family were also poor so, they couldn’t afford a
better education so they didn’t find an education important many people actually told her that
she should give up on an education.My sister went by what her father said about how
important an education is so she can have a nice house, a job, and provide better for her
family. She stuck with morals, her father taught her which is very important for someone to
do. Another act of nurture because to truly understand how important something is someone
has to show you

Nurture is more impactful again because she has a loving family that tries to teach her
so much and they will do that till the day they die. Many kids tend to be influenced by older
adults when they are a young age if you influence them enough, they sometimes look up to
you like you are a hero. All my sisters family is her hero. She learned that from them no
matter the amount of money you have, nothing is more important than family. Which many
parents don’t teach their children this type of thinking which I find impressive. Most of the
things she learned are from her relatives that have passed, she told me once that they always
take the good people first because they need angels to guide the lost.This is an act of nurture
as well, we learn most things from when we are young form the people around us she learned
many things from the family.

This is why I believe nurture had the biggest effect on my sister, she was taught most of
the things she knows from her family. You can only be taught how important family is if you

family proves that. The people you are around affect how you think, how you act. How money
is not the most important thing in the world to think about. Only events like these once can
make you who you are making you strive to be successful and this was all from her father's
dying wish.
