When I was younger I did not know who my parents were and I always thought I was the only child. Until I was about five was when I had first met my biological mother and my life changed drastically. I had visits with my mother until I was my be six years old then she stopped. Then when I was eight I moved to my fifteenth and last foster family (not home because I moved to my foster mother 's mom 's house when was thirteen and currency still live with them). I had unsupervised weekend visits over my biological sister 's house when I was 9, but I was treated very differently by my bio mother than my other siblings even though I was the youngest.
We both have a mother and father that want us to be someone better than ourselves. We both will show our parents, we are who we are and if they do not accept that, then they should not come to us when we are good and making money. To sum up, as soon as we all get older and wiser we will realize how much we are worthy and that we will never be
When Link does finally step into the story and begins to help Melba he changes into an ally for The Little Rock Nine. Link has a very important connection with his nanny, Mrs. Healy, who has been working for his family as long as Link can remember. She had spent her young life working for Link’s grandparents. When Link’s father got married to his mother, Mrs. Healy was sent to work for him, almost as if she were a gift. She was fired from working for Link’s parents toward the end of the school year when she became sick and was not able to work as much as she had.
Gina grew up in inner-city Providence, Rhode Island. When she got pregnant at 19, she was still living with her parents and finishing up school. I chose to interview her because she has gone through a situation involving Planned Parenthood when she was becoming a young mother. Due to her social and economic status, she did not feel prepared to have a child at this age or provide him with the life that would be expected for him. She visited Planned Parenthood multiple times before making a final decision on whether she would terminate her pregnancy.
I never had a united family. My father moved out of my house when I was 3, at the same time my grandmother died. As a result, it left my mother depressed in a house with two children. She depended on my father for child support, who was very inconsistent with his payments because they never officially got divorced. This lead to my mother’s anxiety erupting everyday, worrying if she will have the money to support us through the week.
Each set of kids brought wonderful new meanings to my life. Being involved in foster care has made me a more caring and compassionate person. It also taught me to more responsible and accepting of others. If my family had never started doing foster care I would have never realized how much I love helping kids, which is why I have decided to pursue a career in Child Psychology. Seeing the trauma some kids have to endure
Now most people would be nervous of moving to a new school, but all we had to do was move through new hallways since our middle and high school are connected. Freshman year was probably the hardest year I've had looking back at it now and shaped me to be who I am today. Back in 2013 my grandpa had passed away from a rare form of lung cancer and my Mina (grandma) was suffering on and off from it, having no one to take care of her my mom would stay at her house 5 to 6 days out of the week and she would go there right after work. I would hardly see my mom except in the mornings before school and by than she would be sleeping after driving home from Danbury at 5am. My dad was hardly around from work and just not wanting to be home.
Passion for UNICEF’s mission I was once asked what philanthropy meant to me. For me, it means to acknowledge the exisiting inequalities, to be empathetic, and to give back to the society with my abilities. I am passionate about UNICEF’s mission as I believe that every child deserves safety, healthcare, education, and a fair chance to reach their full potential; and these could only happen when the protection of children's rights is universal. When I was in Taiwan, I was a part of the after school care program held by Rotary International. The program was a collaboration with a local church to provide children from disadvantaged backgrounds with academic support and guidance.
