My father came from a relatively wealthy family while my mother came from a rather poor family. My mothers family was barely educated, at the most her siblings completed up to the 12th grade. All the members of my fathers family had completed all required years of college. My mother and father got an arranged marriage. Then my mom and dad had three kids over the course of 5 years. These kids were my two oldest brothers and my sister. Then my dad's brother found out about the Clinton lottery and told my dad about it. My dad and his brother both signed up for it and only my dad won. He got a visa to america but went alone without his wife and his 3 kids. He stayed in america alone and bulit a life for his family (my siblings and mother). He got a house and a job. After that my 3 oldest siblings and my mom went to america and started there lives in a new country. MY brother mussab was born a few years later in america and then I was born about four years after he was.
