Part A
Year 2006, when I was in primary five, my great grandmother passed away. She had diabetic for about 20years and amputation on both leg up until thigh.
Year 2008, when I was in secondary one, my grandmother passed away. She had diabetic for about 10years and amputated his right leg and left leg’s toes. I was very close with my grandmother, at that time; I cried and missed her a lot.
Year 2011, when I was sixteen years old, I worked as waitress with my two best friends. It was our first time working a part time job together after our N level GCN. The experienced was memorable and unforgettable.
