      I have 2 younger sisters, who are both amazing. Luckily, we don’t over shadow each other too much since we’re interested in different things. One is most interested in law and politics and the other is great with languages. Neither like science as much as me!

      I have one younger sister and we get on really well.
      We used to get compared a lot but found it wasn’t good for our relationship, so now we accept that each of us is better at different things and try not to compete. It was worse when we were younger but as we grew up we both found different interests that we cared about and got good at.
      For instance, she’s much better with maths and music, I’m better at science and art.
      It would be easy to feel overshadowed if I just thought about how good she was at music but she probably wishes she could be better at drawing so it’s not a problem.

      I hope you don’t feel overshadowed by your siblings and if so, it will get better with time as you grow up. 🙂
