We are not only students, business people, lawyers, store clerks, parents, children, or cousins, but also combinations of several different roles. These roles are important  parts of our makeup and provide us with responsibilities, goals, money, joy, stress and much more. Role activities help define who we are by representing the many parts that make us unique.
