Sample Answer 1
Although there have been numerous important people in my life who have acted as influential figures, the one I would like to talk about today is my sister, Danielle.

Danielle is my younger sister, so most people would tend to think that she would be more influenced by me than I would be by here. However, even though I know I have had an effect on her life, I know that she has also made a big impact on mine. Obviously, I have known Danielle since she was born. We grew up together and lived in the same house until I moved away to attend university. It was not until recently, however, that I came to realize how Danielle influences me through her choices, personality, and attitude about life.

I think that Danielle influences me because she inspires me to be positive, try harder, and be kinder to others. That is how she has always lived her life, and watching the way that she interacts with the world teaches me that I should try to put a smile on and treat everyone around me with kindness. Even though no one is perfect, I would say that my sister Danielle is one of the most profoundly nice and cheerful people I have ever met, and anyone would benefit from having a family member or friend like her in life.
