Casper ten Boom took over his father’s watch shop but the store never made a good sum of money because he would often work for free if the costumer was unable to pay. Corrie started to help her father with the shop and in 1920 she began her training as a watchmaker. Two years later she became the first female watchmaker to earn her license in the Netherlands.

I wish my mom would buy me that, but we don't ever have any money to spend on that kind of stuff!” my friend said this, “Well, you could always DOWNLOAD it off of the internet for free!” (she told me how to do it) after I got off the phone with her I couldn't wait to download my first batch of songs but, it didn't stop there. Growing up in my life has never been easy, we CONSTANTLY run out of Nutella, my curfew is only 8:30pm On school nights, and I have to take the trash out EVERY NIGHT. With that in mind, I thought swapping music online would give other repressed children an opportunity to see some positivity In their cruel lives.

I first heard of ACLC from middle school friends who’d managed to win the lottery and a ticket into the school. But, by the time I heard of the school, it was too late to enroll. So, I wasn’t at ACLC from the get-go. While my friends went on to start their first semester of seventh grade at ACLC, I left the country and flew to a Jamaican private school to start mine.

On July 2, 1964, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was enacted. Little did I know the confidence, support and inspiration I enjoyed at my current school would soon end at the end of the school year. By the end of my second grade school year, I was well aware I would be attending a new school with students of another race. I lived a block from families of another race but I was sheltered from any concept of the difference of race except skin color.

Luckily, my husband found another job and the situation dissipated. No permanent change was seen in Loke after this. When Loke is four years old, our household income increases and we are able to buy our first house in the suburbs just in time for our second child to be born. Besides expecting a second child, we moved because the neighborhood in our city apartment was not ideal for young children. There was no place to play and certainly no place to let them play alone.
