Ask someone who knows you well and who can comment on your personal abilities, interrelationships and your interests.

It’s probably of more benefit to you to ask someone who isn’t in your immediate family, so don’t ask mum and dad or uncles and aunts.

If you have had a part-time job or have been a member of a sporting club or volunteer organisation ask someone from those organisations who has worked closely with you  and can comment on your character and your abilities.
