When I was in Haiti, I always wanted to have a wallet. Sometime I used my father's. So back in these day that having a wallet in my country was a big deal for teenagers, everyone always dreamt to have one. I remember a time I woke up and my father told me that I had to come to America and I didn't really know what my feelings were. I was happy at a point but for many reasons I was also sad because I'd leave my friends, but they gave me strengths because when you live in Haiti and you have to come to America it's an important opportunity. The day that I had to leave, before I left my father gave me a wallet with a hundred dollar and he told me to always take care of it (Never Lose It). Knowing me someone that always forget where I put my things (I have a short memory) until today that I'm writing this story, it's been exactly 1 year 9 months I never lost this wallet and it's one of the most important thing I own. This wallet's wavy print is one of the most famous prints from the brand, Gucci.
