Collage of my story
Collage of my story

My great grandfather‘s name is Francisco Alonso, he was a famous musician and opera writer. In the collage it shows all those opera plays that he did. My family, to celebrate, they host a party where they play piano. For me and my cousins we think it is boring but my grandmother says that when we are older we will learn to appreciate the party. Now as I reflect on the beginning of the year I know less about my culture, but now I realize that every year you know more and more about your culture. Mr. Alonso lived in Pedraza, Spain his whole life. He died at the age of 51 when his daughter was only 11. I never really appreciated my culture as much as I do now, and I am excited to learn much more about my culture!
