A valuable object that I brought from my country is the silver bracelet that was given to me by my mother on my 18th birthday. I started to wear the bracelet from the day I got it and, up to this day, I haven’t removed it from my wrist. This bracelet is precious to me. It has emotional value for me because it was given to me by my mother, who told me that the bracelet was made from the silver earrings that her father had given her on her birthday. She told me that her father had worked hard to get those silver earrings for her and they had cost him a lot of money. The earrings were the first item of jewelry she wore when she was a child, so my bracelet connects me not only to my mother but also to my grandfather. After hearing the story of how she got the earrings from her father, I told her I would never remove the bracelet because I never wanted to risk losing it. This is the reason the bracelet is important to me and the only thing that I brought from my country when I came to the United States of America.
