Dear teachers

Does this read well?

Similarly to my sister and my brother, I should also be given money for all I have done for this family.

Thanks

No.

Like my sister and brother, I should ...

You don't want to be treated "similarly to" them - you want to be treated exactly the same as them. Note that you don't need to repeat "my" in the first part.

I might actually reverse and slightly change the sentence in this case: "I should be given money for all I have done for this family, like my brother and sister have been".

How about these?

The same perks given to them, like money and other things, could be extended to me.
