I hope these photos give you a peek into my life. Although they aren’t much and don’t really go into detail, I think these photos show how happy I am with who I turned out to be and how blessed I feel to have the relationships I have, the family I was given, and the places I’ve been.
The aspects shown in these photos show where I have been throughout my life, such as Hogwarts (a.k.a Universal Studios Orlando) and Oahu, Hawaii. I know I don’t tell my parents enough, but I am so thankful for all the vacations we have gone on as a family. I know that things can get expensive, like hotel and airfare, but they sacrifice so much just so that our family can have these experiences. It doesn’t put as much of a financial strain on them but there are still things we budget on to save up for these trips.
The first picture shows the ones who I am closest to and I feel that being able to take a “selfie” with them shows how close knit we are. The people shown are those who I am closest with. They have all been there for me while growing up. What I treasure the most is the diversity within my family. Because of this I’ve been able to try Ethiopian food, which I’ve found that I love, have traditional Thanksgiving meals, and not-so-traditional holiday celebrations. Because of this, I feel like I have been given the confidence to try new things.
The favorite picture out of these 4 is the one of me and the christmas tree. This is because I absolutely love Christmas because it’s just a time for families to come together and give thanks. It seems cliche but honestly I feel that’s the time when I’m the happiest throughout the year.
