On the survey we took in class, I scored 16 liberal responses and 9 conservative responses. As for the economic and social political scale, I got 8 liberal responses for both.

~Family has had a huge impact on my life. Without my parents, I wouldn’t be the strong individual I am today. My parents are not very religious, and have never pressured me into belief. My brother and sister are a major part of my life because we have been through a lot together throughout our childhood. I believe that family has had the biggest impact on my life than any other aspect.
~School has made me a very well educated individual, and if it wasn’t for all my teachers I wouldn’t have the outstanding knowledge I have today. However, throughout elementary school I was bullied for my sensory disorder which traumatically impacted me but also made me stronger and more confident. Some of my teachers were very difficult but it made me strive to try harder in school. Part of my sensory disorder symptoms is school failure, making it difficult to complete the simplest of tasks for everyday life.
~The community has negatively impacted my life if anything. I feel like people in Seattle are way ruder and self-centered than the people in Redmond, where I grew up. You would think it’s the opposite because Redmond is the rich eastside Microsoft incorporated city, but the people there and my true friends were much more genuine than my friends here. Drivers, strangers, at least most of them that I have had encounters with are very disrespectful. However, those made me just laugh and be appreciative of what a nice and friendly person I am.
~The media has had somewhat of an impact on my life, I don’t know whether or not it has been negative or
