No, I wasn’t born in a log cabin and had to walk miles in snowstorms to get to school. I came from a middle class family deep in the heart of the most beautiful community where the village also helped raise the children.
Although a somewhat dysfunctional family, I consider it a blessing to have both sides of the coin. My parents supported my constant changes as to what I wanted to be when I grew up (which was often). Wanting to be a veterinarian, then a psychologist, a musician and writer, my parents were there every step of the way guiding my often crazy decisions.
My father wanted me to always make sure I formulated my own opinion before taking something that someone says at face value. Something that I can say truly molded me into the person that I am today.
I cherish every moment I had in childhood, and love every minute in my adulthood. I am always learning, always growing, always striving to be a better person everyday.
I am a staunch Obama and Joe Biden supporter. I believe in my President and Vice President, and will always continue to support them throughout their tenure.
