My experience as a research intern gave me a
When i was a child i really didn't have the love and support from my family as other people might have gotten which left me to feel alone and giving up on a lot of things. I would play sports and quit because i had no one to come to watch me play then eventually i quit school because i thought no one cared.

He also found what it was like to live without society. He was able to figure out what it was like without the peer pressure of society but rather with you and your mind.

Rockefeller yet, Andrew Carnegie only worked with John for a little, business techniques rubbed off on him.”John D. Rockefeller then went off to run his own business Later known as Standard Oil Company of Cleveland”(Ida M. Tarbell).After learning skills from Andrew Carnegie, John D.
