Socialization1SocializationIsabella PellegriniIntroduction to Sociology: I007 Sum 18Professor Toussaint26 August 2018
Socialization2Who am I?My name is Isabella Pellegrini, and I was born in Kenner, Louisiana twenty-one yearsago. I am one of five children, me being the youngest, with four older brothers. My role and sta-tus in society includes being a sister, daughter, student, and a member of the world’s greatestnavy.Growing up the youngest in a family full of men, I always felt like it was my job to provemyself. Anything that they could do, so could I. I didn’t grow up in a tight-knit family, which Ialways wish I had; However, my dad was my best friend. Everyone knew I was a daddy girl. Allof my life I heard that since I had four older brothers that they must be protective of me. All ofmy brothers were much older than me so once I made it to high school, I felt as if I was an onlychild because I was the only one living at home. I never talked to anyone in my family outside ofmy parents. My mother and father divorced when I turned thirteen, breaking up our family evenmore. When this happened, I saw my father’s true colors and lost one of the most important peo-ple in my life.As an individual, socialization has affected me since my youth, and has further educatedme on how to function in the social world. I always seemed to grow with society. My mom al-ways told me I was so knowledgeable of things that I shouldn’t be worried about. This learningprocess occurs through the agents of socialization. The four agents of socialization that apply tome include family, peer groups, workplace, and mass media.
