Everyone's person is made of many components, and as in my case family, education and friends are the major components that build up my identity and made of me who I am. Family had a great influence on my identity or in other words, my character. From my early beginnings - when I was child - I used to look at my father and learn from him, even if he was not intending to teach me.

This specific attitude is what happened to me as when I was a teenager, I was highly affected by my friends and their chracters. Consequently, identity means the factors affecting each person character as education and family and this is reflected in one's way of thinking and language. In general, Egyptians as a whole are very significant people and they appear to be strange. They are full of contrasts and puzzling attitudes. However, they are considered to be kind and generous, so they are loved by most people of the world. ...read more.
