Where I am From

Share this story:



By Mariam

I am from a bigger family who doesn’t care about each other.

from the feeling of lonely but also of hope.

I am from amepela
from barbecue fish and beans

I am the lonely child who lost her parents when she was a kid
like the mother who raised her
and died when she was 3 and 2 years

I am from California where
I was born for the second time and Oakland where I found friends and new family.

I am from ANNE­-christine and Godatse who both raised me in different ways.

I am from Flor, my foster mother who loves me so much.

I am from chicken,hot dogs and rice.

from Christmas

I am productive, particular and consistent.
