Signature Shirt

The signature shirt is a tradition of my country El Salvador. It takes place when you’re ending a school stage, and you’ll start high school. When I was 11 years-old, my older sister had 14 years-old, and she was ending ninth grade, that means she supposed to do her signature shirt. I was so excited for her, and also I wanted to be in her grade because I thought the signature shirt is an awesome thing than they doing. Then when I was in ninth grade I did it, and it felt so great, because I was finished with school (in the U.S it’s middle school). This is important because I was keeping the memories and friends that I did in school, and places that are special for me and I want keep with me. This tradition not only my sister and I make it, it’s a tradition that continue on generation in my country.
