This is my family. My family is something that is very important to me, as for everybody else. And my family is very different from each other even though we love each other. For example, where everybody originated. My dad is from Cape Town, South Africa. He had a rough life growing up. His dad became very rich investing smart, but it got to his head. He ended up losing money faster than he was making, and he ended up becoming dirt poor. My mom, on the other hand, had a pretty good life growing up. Other than the fact her parents were divorced. She lived in Ontario, Canada. She had a dad as a dentist and a mom who didn’t really do anything, and her dad was living pretty well. It sucked because he kept getting new wives who my mom at the time hated. Now, onto my siblings and I. We have had a very good life so far. We are living pretty good, never going hungry or without a place to stay. We have been treated to good experiences, and we are going to a good school district. My parents have come together and made a better life for my siblings and I. That is why they are the best parts of our lives. They love us, we love them, and we will never forget how good they are to us. Thank you mom and dad, for everything you have done for us.

Place(s): New York, Cape Town, Ontario
