My Personal and Global Change Wheel On my personal change wheel, I stated half of the pie chart is about my parents getting a divorce and the other half is that my father never being there to guide me. I will elaborate more about those topics so you have a better understanding about my personal changes in life. I was born in Manila Philippines and moved to America when I was about 3 or 4 years old.
