Identify the different roles and status that you play and are located in. Do you think roles and status change? Discuss when and how they change.

As an individual I have many roles and status like for my teachers I am a student, for parents I am a daughter, if I go for shopping I am a customer, for my classmates I am monitor of the class, for my sister I am her elder sister. So these are the various statuses that I am into and every status has a different role to play.

• For my teachers I am a student and I need to obey there orders, to give my best in studies and to follow all the disciplines of the school

• For my parents I am a daughter and I need to respect them, to look after them, to take care of them and I can also ask them for something and sometimes I can demand to be pampered.

• For my younger sister I am an elder sister and I need to set my behaviour in such a manner that I could be a role model for her and she could understand how to behave from me and at the same time I need to be your friend so that she could share all her problems and feelings with me.

• For my classmates I am there friend as well as the class monitor and being the class monitor I have to make them follow the school discipline, the class decorum and have to act as a link between the teachers and my classmate.
