The life of Kate Roberson

Do you know what the perks of being the youngest child are? You never get blamed for anything, your parents are way more lenient with you, and you have automatic bodyguards for siblings. How do I know? I am the youngest child in my family. There are a lot of perks being the youngest child in the family, but there are plenty of disadvantages as well. The greatest disadvantage in my life is never being able to say my thoughts in a conversation because my sisters will hog all the attention. This disadvantage has taught me the lessons of listening and understanding the importance of what other have to say, so I guess this could be another perk.

A Graph of My Life

Music That Moves Me

Everyday, on the way to and from kindergarten, my dad and I would listen to “Soak Up The Sun” by Sheryl Crow. In my five year old head, I thought the lyrics, “I’m gonna soak up the sun,” meant the girl who wrote the song really liked going to the beach. Throughout my life, I have revisited the song and its meaning. A few years ago, the lyrics, “I’m gonna soak up the sun,” meant I should always try and collect all the good that is given to me. Recently, the lyrics revealed to me that there are good times and bad times in life, but I should forget about the bad and focus on the good. This song is so important to me because it always brings back great memories and reminds me to be optimistic. This song also sparked my love for music and finding different songs’ true meanings.

People Who Inspire Me

My grandmother has become a great inspiration in my life because throughout her life she had a lot of hardships, but she always persevered. I hope someday I can have that same level of perseverance she had.

My mother has always inspired me to become whatever I wanted and not let anything hold me back from doing so. She has always been the motivation behind everything I do.

Roald Dahl has been and always will be one of my favorite authors. His books have inspired and reminded me to always have a huge imagination.
