mold for special desert

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My name is Sanzara.I was born here, in America. But my parents are from Bangladesh. My object is from Bangladesh too. My mom brought it over. She came over because she wanted to experience another”world”. Also because everyone said how amazing America was. The object is a mold for a special dessert we make in Bangladesh. The dessert is made on special occasions. The mold is to design the dough before cooking it. The mold is made out of dirt and other materials from nature. It was carved and shaped for designing the dessert. The object is special because my grandma gave it to my mom. She told my mom to use it and save it for as long as she could. So every time I help my mom to make the dessert, it reminds me of my grandma. The object is 24 years old. My grandma has used it also before my mom. It is important to my culture because the dessert is a special food in my country. So you have to shape the dessert with the mold.This was my object. It comes from Bangladesh. It came from my grandma. She passed it down to my mom and eventually, my mom will give it to me.
