I realized that I became a young adult as soon as my mother left for America, she left my younger brother who was very young and I had to step up and be an older sister to him. I took care of him and continued my education.
I was ten years old when my mother went to the USA and I tried to be the be the best me that I can be. I did not have to cook or do laundry because we had a lady who did that part. All I know is to be a person who helps others and be good to others.
