Relationship: Im/migrant

My object is a lock and its used for locking big bags. The family member that used it in my family was my mom because when we were coming to the U.S my mom used to lock her bag. My object was bought in Ethiopia by my mom. I notice it when my family was moving to the U.S. I chose this object because it reminds me of the struggles that we went through to get to a better life. This object makes me feel happy because it shows the dedication and perservernace to get to a better life. This object is been with my family for 7 years.
