“MY SELF PORTRAIT”

My   life   towards   getting   a   college   degree   and   achieving   my goals   have   now   begun.   My   name   is   Latchmie   Kanhai.   I   am   24   years   old   born   and   raised   in   Queens,   NY.   My   nationality   is   American,   religion   Hindu.   I   was   raised   in   a   very   loving   and   caring   family.   My father   left   when   I   was   2,   leaving   my   mom   to   raise   my   brother   and   I on   her   own   with   the help   of   my   grandparents   (maternal),   3   uncles,   and   my   aunt.   Growing   up   my   mother   worked   2   jobs   and   went   to   school   to   provide   for   us   and   make   sure   we   had   what   we   needed.   Watching   my   mother   struggle   everyday   day   made   me   the   person   I   am   today.
