Sisters. They’re meant to be loved and cared for, right? Well, that’s not the case for freshmen Han Gao’s two sisters. Gao and his two sisters share the same dead appreciation to each other since the beginning. “To me, Han is my mostly annoying little brother,” said Ting Gao ’19 when asked who Han Gao is to her.

“Han Gao is an intelligent and engaged AP Human Geography student,” comments Gao’s AP Human Geography teacher Megan Johnson.

“My [younger] sister really dislikes having as her brother,” said Ting when asked if she feels that her younger sister is happy to have Han as her brother. “She is always telling Han that he is an embarrassment to the family, and yelling at him for doing stupid stuff in public,” Ting explains how when her sister denied that Han is her brother when she got too embarrassed. “The younger sister I have snitches on me a lot,” said Han. “[I feel] annoyed and it makes me feel insecure because she has always been spying on me, trying to find something to get me in trouble.”

However, Ting rarely snitches on Han unless if Han has committed a horrible crime in the household. Han has been used to getting snitched on by his older sister, that bribing has been the resolution to avoid getting in trouble. “It’s really easy to bribe my other sister, like for example my parents say I shouldn’t be baking pizza when they’re out on something; I bake it but I sometimes give my sister a piece just to get her to shut up.”

When asked how Han and Ting feel towards one another, they feel the happiness of having each other as a faithful companion throughout life, although most of the time they regret having each other as a sibling.
