Not only do I support my parents, but I also support my younger cousins and brother.
As an eldest brother and cousin, I feel I must be a good example for the young ones.
I believe that not only is it the key to success, but it’s also the key to happiness.
College will help me meet my high education and career expectations that I have for myself which is to ultimately get my Professional degree, and make a global difference.
We moved several times while I was growing up and at times, I would be left at a relative’s house because of my mother’s need to get us financially stable.
Things improved, I remained committed to working hard in school, and the expectations never changed. In my family, there are four people: my father, my mother, my little brother and me. Every family member plays an important role in all my family’s lives.Some people may view this as a devastating event; however I have chosen to embrace being an American and a Ghanaian.Coming from two different backgrounds was a challenge, because of the different values and morals each share.I explained how violence is the answer to anything.I advised him to first talk to his classmate in a professional manner.I was born into a “happy” family that was actually a web of lies, which unfolded itself through a divorce.My parents’ marriage was based on the fact that my father needed a permanent residency card to stay in the United States.I told him to go discuss the problem and try to resolve it peacefully.My brother then asked me why he shouldn’t fight his classmate.
