Family Structure I was born as a C-section baby with a bow-shaped lips and strong eyebrows. My parents were extremely joyous with a birth of their daughter. In Hindu cultures, a birth of a daughter symbolizes the “goddess Laxmi,” who is a goddess of wealth and prosperity (Narayan & Purkayastha (2009, p.199).

I am a daughter, a sister, a family member, a friend and much more. I grew up in a huge family and that tends to happen when your parents are divorced. I am the oldest of seven siblings. My family is a part of who I am today in both households. I learned many things from both households and because of that I am grateful for each day I have with my family.
Discussing the deep culture elements in my life is very personal because while it has shaped me to be the person I am today, they were formed through what I have experienced and those who have influenced me. On March 28, I was born in St. Louis to two loving parents, Margie and Tom, and one older sister, Emily. My family’s dynamic changed from being a family of three to a family of four. My mom was a teacher before she had my sister, but decided to stay at home with my sister and I. My dad worked during the day and took night classes to work on his Master’s.

I was an only child until I was almost three when my little sister was born. A couple of weeks before I turned eight my little brother was born. They have impacted my life way more than they realize. Being an older sister has shaped me into the person I am today in school and class, because I’ve learned how to cope with different things, learned that people like to do things their own way and I have learned how to set a good example. I have learned how to cope with things I don’t like very much being a big sister.
Every day it feels like someone else discovers that I'm a triplet. When I was little I didn’t think being a triplet was such a big deal but it’s something very special and I’m proud to call myself one. I was also born last, so I was the 3rd born.
