No Matter Where I Come From
Student Name – Lewisville, TX – January 23, 2019
Two of my brothers have come a long way throughout their lives, from literally living deep in poverty to having happy, healthy families and buying their own homes. They are my older brothers. One is twenty four, and the other one is twenty seven. Both of them were born in Tejupilco, Mexico.
They didn’t have everything I have had when they were younger; both of them stayed behind in Mexico with my grandparents while both my mother and my father made their way to the United States to look for good jobs so that they could support my brothers back in Mexico.
With the help of our parents, my brother, Carlos, was given the opportunity to study and become a teacher. My other brother, Rogelio, didn’t go to school in Mexico. He waited to come to the United states to get a better education. Once my brothers both had the chance to come to the U.S., they did, with the help of our parents. They came to a new country with no idea of what life would really be like. They had no money. No car. Nothing.
After just months, they both had jobs. Rogelio enrolled in high school though unfortunately, he had to drop out to support his family. He still managed to make it through with two jobs, day and night, but because he had not graduated from high school, he really didn’t get paid as much as he could have. My brother, Carlos, didn’t have to go to school here since he had already studied back in Mexico. He got married, and he and his wife both worked. They were able to pay their bills and save money.
Seeing my brothers succeed despite all the struggles they endured has shown me that no matter what material items I have or don’t have, the work I put in will pay off in the long run. Because of my brothers’ struggles and achievements, I believe that anyone can find success no matter where they come from. It just takes time and effort for it to happen. The key is to not to give up and just believe.
