When you were young perhaps something stuck out to you then or maybe even earlier maybe in your high school experience or something like that maybe your parents had an active role in teaching you how to read and write and thinking about different things like that that goes right into someone who taught you like who was important teaching you these different skills and maybe it’s not specifically reading and writing maybe you’re the language you were working with is the language of music maybe I don’t know this might be stretched but the language of food or something else some different way to communicate just thinking about communication so people who are influential to you maybe a book or text of importance maybe you had if a favorite story that you like to hear when you were a kid maybe you had were assigned this in high school and you really enjoyed it and for some reason that is something that really stuck out to you maybe you want to talk about that maybe any event at school that happened maybe a spelling bee of some sort any sort of major event that had to do with reading and writing that you can remember.
