Collage of my story

In my house there is a photo of my grandma, Maria, with her mother when she was a baby. Though it is not the original photo it is still very touching to me. It might be because my grandmother died six years ago from cancer or it might be because I think we both look alike. I do not have many memories with my grandmother and most of the memories are in California’s Japantown in San Francisco. She always got me a stuffed animals no matter how expensive. I love that she always encouraged me no matter what!

Place(s): Japantown, San Fransisco, Korea, China
