Even as a child, my parents had high hopes for my siblings and I. My mother assumed duty as a housewife to teach all her children and care for everyone in the house while my father worked day and night to provide for us. My mother was the first person who taught us how to write, read, speak, and solve problems.. We all had learned to write the alphabets and our names by the time we were 3-4 years old. I loved writing my name as a child because my parents made me feel so proud and confident about the fact I could. I fell in love with reading and at the time period in my life, I enjoyed reading more than writing my own pieces.

I want to write free but I need a lot of time to fix everything and I feel like everything is on a time constraint so I feel rushed and strangled by everything.
