Although I have no remembrance of my early years of life, I would say that I do know my roots pretty well; I was born in a Caribbean country named Dominican Republic on April 6, 1992, which makes me sixteen years old. I am the fourth child out of six, making me the youngest out of the three girls. The basic information only situates my position in life but does not define me. I am a simple young lady that follows a routine on a daily basis. I have done small but significant things in my previous years that have shaped who I am today.
The definition of a simple life for me is following a routine that does not include partying every week, going to the movies on the weekends or just spending time with friends. My life might not be as exciting to others as it is for me. I like being physically active, which is why I have built my life around afterschool activities such as softball and volleyball. Participating in sports is not the only thing that keeps me busy through my life, taking care of my little twin brothers is a responsibility I have included in my routine. Being a second mom two my little brothers and participating in sports are my two main priorities at this point in life. The way I spent my daily life does not sound captivating or thrilling but it has for sure played a major part of who I am.
No matter how many times my little brothers annoy me or make me go crazy at the end all that matters Is that I really love and care for them. I care so much that I have given up my teenage fun years just to take care of them. On a daily basis I help them with their homework and every Saturday and Sunday I nurture them which includes feeding, bathing and playing with them. At the same time that I am with them I have to keep up with my chores and school work which is not an easy task but it has though me how to be responsible and manage my time for each. It might seem as if my responsibilities do not take much time but in reality it does, a lot of time, simply for the fact that my afterschool activities shortens my time too. Although at times it seems as if I cannot handle it anymore, that is when my responsible quality shows up, I know that no matter what, my chores, my and their homework has to be done so I just waste no time complaining.
