Glass harp

Collage of my story

My great grandfather Poppop came here from Ireland, and didn’t just get in the U.S. like that. But I’m not gonna talk about that. My Poppop came to America in 1958 on a plane, it was his first time traveling, and on a plane. He came here to work, and send money to his family. One of the things he brought, and gave it to as is a glass harp. Sadly right now he has a sickness/disease that basically makes his body slo-mo, but his mind is fast. But what I’m psyched about is, that he started out as an Irish boy that just got here, and now he’s the CEO of Wall Street access firm. I love my Poppop. Hard work can make your dreams come true.
