Seahawks connect and clash with younger siblings
Students appear to have closer relationships with younger siblings that they share common interests with. Of course, some just do not get along.
Sophomore Samir Maslouhi and his seven-year-old sister Sara both play soccer together.
“My sister is in first grade,” said Maslouhi. “She’s amazing at soccer. She scores like five to six goals per game. I am really proud of her and we mostly play soccer together.”
Freshman Tyler Hutson and his 13-year-old brother Conner share a passion for music. They spend much time jamming together, which Hutson reports brings them closer together.
“I have two younger siblings,” said Hutson. “My sister is 10, her name is Cara and my brother is 13, his name is Conner and he goes to Rachel Carson Middle School. We all get very along and there are hardly any difficulties between one another.”
Avishan Ahmadi has two, eight-year-old twin sisters.
“One of my sisters’ name is Peggah,” said Ahmadi. “She does cheerleading, figure skating, and plays softball.”
Avishan and Peggah both play the same sports which bring them closer together.
“Whenever she needs help, I help her out. When I learn something new in figure skating, I try teaching it to her. We really get along and we hardy argue.” said Ahmadi.
Bernardo Guerrero has a little brother in pre-school.
“His name is Franky,” said Guerrero. “I always wanted a baby brother and I love him like he’s my own brother. I help him play soccer and we have a blast of fun together”.
Even though Franky is younger than Bernardo, they still have soccer as a bond and it connects them.
Sometimes, there is a love and hate relationship between siblings. An example is freshman, Francisco Esteve and his 10-year-old brother, Justo.
“We fight a lot. He doesn’t take away the attention of our parents from me which is a good thing, but we still don’t get along.”
Francisco and Justo used to play football together before Francisco started high school.
“Now that I started high school, I don’t really have much free time anymore.” said Esteve.
Senior Marcos Perez and his seven-year-old sister, Alexa, also do not get too along.
“We are ten years apart,” said Perez. “She looks up to me although she back talks to me and tries to get smart with me. One day she decided to point a paint ball gun at my face and pulled the trigger. Thank God there were no bullets. I got really mad at her.”
Freshman Gjaiyland Brown and her five-year-old sister also don’t get along.
“Kamora is my little sister and she goes to Dogwood Elementary,” said Brown. “I don’t like her. She gets on my nerves. When she couldn’t walk and talk we were best friends, but now I can’t stand her. She hits me, she tells on me for something I didn’t do, and she never leaves me alone. I can never have time to myself when she’s around.”
However, if something bad were to happen to Kamora, Gjaiyland would immediately jump to the rescue.
“I’d still save her because I love her even though she bugs me every day,” said Brown.
Other students and their younger siblings are in full synchronization even if there is not a specific bond that holds them together.
Hazel Qurnonez has two, nine-year-old twins, Rodrygo and Gracie. She also has a 10-year-old brother, Cesar.
“We all get along. I look after them and they look up to me,” said Qurnonez.
