Family History Wherever and how one overcomes their adversity in a path to enduring a better life, one must never forget their own roots because it is their key to their own ancestral history. For this interview, I have chosen my mother, , who has endured a journey filled with many obstacles to coming to the United States as an immigrant from Fiji Islands. Fiji Islands is a third-world country; thus, it is a place where most of the people have limited opportunities to achieve academic excellence and become whatever they desire to be. My mother was born in Sigatoka, Fiji Islands. Suva is the capital of Fiji. She has 6 other siblings, 3 brothers and 3 sisters. When she was in her primary school years in the 1960’s, she used to walk barefoot on the streets for miles back and forth to school. Due to limited resources that her parents could provide her, she used to use a plastic bag as her backpack and her mother used to sew her clothes for school. Unlike the other girls at school, my mother was not blessed to be in a rich family, so there would be other girls at her school who would have better quality things than her. She used to go fishing with her other siblings so they can provide food for her family. When spending time with her sister’s, she went to the riverside with a bucket full of clothes so they can wash it over there. They use to have a big oblong type of wood by the river where they washed clothes. Also, during that time they did not have a T.V. set, so they used to go to their neighbor’s to watch movies. But, she didn’t let that get the best of her because my mother’s parents had ensured her food and hospitality and love. After being nurtured by her parents, she had married my father, he was from a wealthy family in Fiji Islands. My father is an auto mechanic. After both of them were married, my mother’s family members who were already living in the United States sponsored them into coming to the United States too. Luckily, they were approved and were excited to embark on a journey of many opportunities headed their way. When they came to the United States, they did have to overcome adversities such as living in San Francisco with a family relative in an apartment owned by Indian owners that consisted of a single room. My mother used to work at a hotel in order to get some money in her pockets, it for sure was not enough but it was just enough to buy the basic necessities and have some change in spare. After living in San Francisco for three years, my mother decided with my father to purchase a house and get on their own two feet and stop being dependent on others but still be thankful to her relatives for the
and convictions. One’s ego is being formed as a unity of consciousness and individual “circumstances”. Finally, this unity is the one that predetermines individual’s point of view and unrepeatable “perspective”.
My point of view, however, is a bit different. To me, “Yo soy yo y mi familia”. Family predestines the life of a person, starting from the wealth of the family and ending with the upbringing. Family is most significant part of every person’s life, and caring for members of family is of utmost…

population. In 2010 my grandfather had a heart attack caused by a clot on his arm. My grandfather almost died because he went to one of the public hospitals in Atibaia, Sao Paulo. When my grandfather arrived in the ambulance, he needed to wait for thirty minutes to get medical service because all the doctors were busy with other patients, and the hospital did not have enough medical equipment to take care of all the patients. My parents actually wanted to take him to a private hospital, but my grandfather…
influenced by their families and to what extent do they self-define their beliefs. When it comes to religion, especially in the Latino community, I feel as if the decisions that adolescence make on their beliefs has a lot to do with family influences. My sources will prove this argument is true by showing how family plays a huge factor in their child’s religious views and practices. The sources also explain how most adolescences begin to search for oneself and experiment with whom they are as a person…

vise pe care in mod normal nu mi le-as permite. In primul rand as calatori prin toata lumea alaturi de cei dragi pe un vas de croaziera , in cele mai exotice si frumoase locuri, unde doar in vise as putea ajunge.
Apoi desigur le-as oferi celor din familia mea un trai decent si as incepe o afacere care pe viitor sa prospere si asa as putea ajuta si alti oameni bolnavi, cu nevoi speciale prin sprijin material si acte de caritate. As deschide si un adapost de animale unde, cele abandonate si maltratate…

decriminalization of cannabis for both medicinal and recreational use could cripple the Mexican DTOs as it the most profitable drug at the moment.
In 2008, my family came from Sunday Mass to my grandparents’ home to talk to my many family members, as this was almost a family tradition. When I saw two men sitting by the side that seemed strangely quiet I asked my grandmother who they were and I was told just to ignore them. Some years later I heard one of the two had been murdered and through talking to other…
