|1.||Hello, my name is Sam. As the middle child, I always feel like the black sheep of the family. I am often compared to my siblings by my parents. My older sister won a scholarship to study abroad, and my younger brother is the basketball captain at his school. I love music and I enjoy composing songs. Despite my passion, my parents have never understood it. I’m told that making and composing music won’t assure my future. In fact, I’m always told to get good grades so I can be more like my sister and receive a scholarship. I can’t really talk to my sister since she lives overseas and my brother is busy with his practice. I’m graduating soon, so I feel like I don’t have much time to make the wrong decision.|
