My object is my motorcycle project. I’ve got an idea of making the motorcycle with my family’s support. When I lived in Vietnam, I worked with my dad on his mechanics. My parent can’t get along together and they divorced. My mom moved us to the US and I never had a chance to say goodbye to my dad. This is the first time I moved to the US and I’m still learning a lot from this country. At first I thought I can drive because I have a license in Vietnam but I don’t have permission to get a license soon so I have to wait even though I’m still learning about mechanics. At my grandfather’s house he has an unfinished motorcycle so I asked him that I want to repair it and he agreed.  I mostly spend my time to repair the motorcycle during my free time because it reminds me of my biological dad and his job. He is the person who taught me to drive when I was 14 and the person I paid my respect to the most. He may not be able to listen to what I said anymore but he will always be missed. That’s the reason why I have to finish the project, to remind my dad and to make him proud.
