I'ma strong black young lady all my life I had to become adult before it was time for me to, I'm from Brooklyn new York, I grew up with my grand mother,grandfather, n mother and a handful of cousins, aunt's, and a uncle's we all was bundle up in a three bedroom apartment in the project's.

My grandmother was the backbone she kept the family together. When I was13 years old she had past away and a little after her death the family had falling apart, but my aunt Dawn had did the best she could to keep the family together but at the end of the day she couldn't do wat grandma did.

Even doe my mom and grandfather was still here it didn't feel the same without my grandma, I felt lost. Now that my grandma wasn't here I had to make sure my mom was good basically I had to be a mother to my mother she was very smart but she wasn't book smart so I had to help take care the Kids, take her to her appointments and basically talk for her and explain to her what was going on. Me going through all that I started to smoke week, drink and have sex at the age of forteen yrs old, in between time my mom used to drink a lot and leave me in the house with the kids most of the time, from that I feel like I somewhat didn't have a childhood, but at the same time I truly love my mother she really showed us true love and she spoiled us all in our own way, but I was the first so I really was spoiled.

My aunt Dawn had lived uptown Harlem and I used to go to here house from time to time and by the age 16 I had make a Guy name Black who had got me pregnant, he was 21 at the time but when I met him I lied and told him I was 18 yes old, after a while I told him the truth but by then it was too late cause I was already pregnant, and I was happy it was a boy and I name him after his farther.

When my son was born my baby farther came to stay with me at my mom house with the rest of my siblings, I had my own room so even though it was a lot of people living in the house we made the best of it.

By the time I was 20 I had moved out into my own place me my son, and his daddy
