Who Am I?
My name is ______. My ethnic background explains a lot of who I am, and the values that I have developed. My name was chosen using a religious method that is based on astrology. My parents are both from India and moved here only a couple of years before I was born. They spoke little English, and as a result, I was taught Gujarati as a first language. I grew up with a large family because my parents, grandparents, and my uncle’s family all lived in the same house. Growing up in this environment helped mold me into the man that I have become today.
My family is religious and we went to the temple every week. Even as a child I attended temple schooling where they taught us about our heritage, which in turn educated me about where I came from. However, now I am not that religious and don’t go to the temple because I believe it is becoming corrupted. My family and my parents in particular, provided me with the morals that I hold to be true. I am very grateful of the way my parents brought me up. They always told me do to others as you would like them to do to you. That phrase is what I keep in mind be
I believe that not only do I get most of my physical traits from my mother but I get much more. I was use to trying harder than other students because I had to catch up, so I had no trouble doing well in school after I caught up with the other kids. That is why I believe that childhood experiences are responsible for a lot of the traits we have when we grow up. My parents understood that I had trouble, so they put in extra effort to help me in school. My parents are very strict so I get punished very harshly, and I always have that to keep in mind before I do something. We both think a like and have many common interests. The foundation has been set for me so I just have to build upon it. I have my parents to thank for keeping me in check while I was young so I can be where I am now. There are many experiences that have made me what I am. People always say that I look like my mother. My education is effected by the teachers I had and even more by my parents. My father and I never really spent a lot of time together while I was young, and it continued while I was growing up. I believe that I got most of my physical traits from my parents through genetics. Aside from the height, I get my skin tone from my mother.
