Halfway through my senior year in high school, I decided that I wouldn’t continue with applications to college or community college...

Right Now

As a child I felt more connected to the moon, the stars and seas, much more than to any flag or nation yearning to reconnect with my true home yet unknown.

I Am

I was 8 years old when my dad tried to explain to me that I couldn’t get a driver’s license. The subject came up when I told him “I couldn’t wait to drive!” He then proceeded to tell me why.

Beginning to Understand

After that I started doing more extreme things, and then what I was doing back then became a habit.

I Like Sports!

I have been through difficult times in my life, but along with my husband and son, we have been able to overcome everything thanks to the great love there is between us.

Dreams Do Come True

...when I was in school, they could not buy me a physical education uniform...

To Learn Many Things

What I say to my children is that they be good parents to their children. We suffered a lot because we didn’t have much food; there wasn’t plenty, so we never wasted any.

I Wanted to Study

I would go to school, come back and do my homework and go outside and play with my friends. It felt so good! I loved my life at that moment. It was like if a big weight was off my shoulders.

In Every Storm There’s a Calm
