Why my mom never let me go out hang out with in my friend’s house, or why she never let me go play soccer at the park. As I grew up and got older and wiser, I now fully understand her unique responsibility as a mother, and her goal which was to build a safe environment for me and my brother. I was raised in the city of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, by my mom and my 93-year old aunt, next to my older brother. I went from playing soccer outside on the streets barefooted, riding down in my bike through the whole block, climbing trees and crossing fences, and honestly I am grateful for that. I truly prefer to live a childhood with ups and downs, with blood and scars, and full of extraordinary memories that are hard to forget, than in today's kids environment full of technology and simply not as fun.
Majority of young females in our city wait eagerly for the day they can turn babysitting into cash. But for my sister, there was no cash and hanging out with her friends on the weekend quickly changed to babysitting her younger sister. Regardless, my twenty-four-year-old sister says she is
Personal Essay I am the second oldest in my foster family, but I lived with my foster grandma. Whenever she needs a fast babysitter she usually asks me to do it and I never have her pay me for doing it. Whenever my family needs help with cleaning or putting something together, I am always there to help. I am the kind of person who likes to put others issues before my own. I grew up by myself until I was eight, but since no one really looked out for me when I was younger, I just feel like I have to look out for everyone else.
William IV, King of the United Kingdom and Hanover, died on June 20, 1837, at the age of 72. Victoria became the new queen because he and his older brothers had no legal male and female offspring. In the morning of June 21, she was woken up by her mother. She told Victoria that William Howley (The Archbishop of Canterbury) and Lord Conyngham had come to speak to her. Lord Conyngham told Victoria that her uncle, William IV, had died and that she was going to be the new Queen.
Victor decided that was unfair and stayed back with her at the apartment while everyone else had fun elsewhere. Eventually Aunt Reine, her Uncle, Victor, and Claudine all left to go to Geneva. When they left the good attitude Niang had while family was visiting left too. She sent Adeline to a different boarding school. There was visiting days every Sunday, and all the girls around Adeline had their mothers visiting them.
She often visited the theater, loving comedy, and dramatic plays. The Queen never married, to stay independent, and therefore is called the Virgin Queen. She also held other nicknames like Gloriana, Good Queen Bess, the Great and the Faerie Queen. Family Queen Elizabeth was the daughter of King Henry VIII Tudor and his second wife Anne Boleyn. Elizabeth was born in Greenwich on the 7th September 1533.
People could only imagine knowing Miss Soar on a personal level, yet here I was about to spend a full two weeks by her side in a classroom. Although I knew of Miss Soar, we never had a conversation, but that would soon change. Sitting at my study writing a shopping list my mother had asked for when I heard the doorbell ring followed by a brief conversation. It was Miss Soar! At dinner later that night my mother broke the new, “Honey, Miss Soar has requested your help at her camp this summer.” she said.
Entry 1 Question 3: When I was in elementary school for an after school activity I was in Girl scouts. It was fun and we did many things throughout the school year. One of the activists we did was visit a nursing home during the holidays and sing songs and visit with the residents. What made it intercultural was that we were talking to experienced elders who grow up in a different time then we did and how things were different. One resident was telling me about their job she was a sister and at time when she lived in the school and she and the other sisters shared a room and that in the summer it was horrible because there was no air conditioning.
She was never just a good friend to me, she had been one of the rocks of my life - an anchor point. She and I would make up dance moves to the music by the pop singer, Prince and force her mom and little sister to be our audience. We would make them sit on the couch and watch us perform these dances that must have been terrible for them to have to watch, neither she nor I had any rhythm and we never actually practiced before we demanded an audience. Her family had a pool in their backyard, so I spent my summer days at her house. She and I were rebels.
I would wait a couple minutes for her to go to the kitchen and eat and go straight to her bedroom and check her bookbag. Check all of her notebooks and books and see what was new and pretend i was reading even though I didn't know how to. I was always excited to learn about school that's all I cared about when I was growing up. Watch my sister going to school since I couldn't because of my age was such a good motivating to me to be anxious to start school to grow up and do big things. This was just the start of how I started to look up to my sister.
