Growing up with my brother taught me how to collaborate and negotiate with another person around me.  A turning point came in our relationship when we were in our early teens, when we began to truly lookout for one another.  To this day, he’s the person I relate to most closely in my life, and someone I feel I could face any challenge with.  My relationship with my brother taught me that there are people out there who will make sense to me, and who will always understand me.
