USA Passport


This is a photo of my United States of America passport.
When I was six years old, I came to United States with my mom; at that time I have no idea what kind of future holds for me. My dad came to USA first and worked at a Chinese restaurant. My mom started off working at a sewing company then she worked at a Chinese American restaurant owned by a friend of hers. Earning money at that time was difficult and both of my parents have to work in order to support the whole family. Since my parents worked all day long, it's always my grandparents who took care of me. My mom applied for US citizenship and it was not an easy task. Eventually, I received my first USA passport in middle school.
