That night, my parents dreamt of a happy life in Canada where the environment is beautiful and it is very peaceful. The next day, my father completed an immigration application for my entire family (my mother and my brother) and paid a total fee of approximately $2500 (it includes the landing fee and the application processing fee). My parents were busy during those days. They were going through the processes that had to be done such as the educational assessment, work experience examination, and the medical tests. After a few days of waiting, the immigration application was officially completed and sent to the immigration department of Canada.

Like most younger siblings, I wanted to copy every aspect of her life so I said yes. This was the first time I donated my hair to those who are financially disadvantaged and suffer from long-term medical hair loss. I then grew it out and donated my hair again in second, fourth, fifth, seventh, ninth, and twelfth grade. In total, I have donated over seventy inches of hair in only seven haircuts. I have been very fortunate to have been born with such thick, healthy hair that grows back so quickly.
The Autobiography of Bessie Coleman… From the Grave I stepped out of the house and took a deep breath. Today was the day… In Atlanta, Texas in the year of 1892, I, Bessie Coleman, was born on the 26th day of January. I’m sure you know this, but the south wasn’t an easy place for the African-Americans and being a woman… well, that made it even harder. My parents were sharecroppers and I was the tenth of thirteen children, but not all of my siblings survived. Sounds rough.

Jennifer’s parents moved from Italy to Canada prior to her birth and her father spent many years working two jobs in order to make ends meet. He eventually got a construction job at a company called John Mansville and subsequently successfully ran his own construction business for several years. In order for her father to make more money and improve his employment situation, the family moved several times around the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) when she was very young. Miles Corak’s study illustrates that each time a child moves houses, their level of income later in life decreases by about $1,000 (Corak 2000, pp.140). However, Jennifer now works in a managerial position where it is difficult to believe she was, in any way, affected by the moving of houses when she was young.
