Think about a major milestone that happened with your family this past year. How has this affected you?
Actually, my dad and my stepmother FINALLY made the trek out to California to visit us this year! In fact, they liked it so much that they came back later in the summer and brought my sister as well! It’s great to see my family, and I’m especially proud that I was able to show why I love where I live and why I chose to be here “so far away from home”. I think they finally understand what brought me here and can accept that southern California is now my Home.
