My parents separated when I was very young, almost too young to remember, so my older sisters were left to raise me and do everything parents are supposed to do.

I would love to give my children more siblings, but not before I finish school and am in a good career and as well as in a stable relationship or marriage. I came from a big family and I would like to have a big family as well. I believe that I can reach all my goals as long as I try hard enough and do not give up when the going gets tough. I want to provide a better life for my family than I had growing up and want to show them that there is more to life than what they see around
