My strong community
Growing up, I lived in a small town, where a sense of community was not hard to be found. Living in a good community has helped me to be influenced greatly by those around me, I have gained knowledge from many people. My strong community became distinct when my mum became sick. During this time my dad had to balance going to work, looking after my siblings and I, as well as visiting my mum in the hospital. Members of our community were extremely helpful by looking after us while my dad was not home or simply sending cards showing their support. It was at this time in my life that I knew how important a strong sense of community is. Not only can they support you in difficult times, but they also have shaped me into the person I am today.
(I feel as if I can maybe expand on some of the points and add more substance to it overall)
