I come from dire straits, though to hear some of my family tell it, it sounded glamorous for a while. It's all a fairy tale to me at this point. I moved around a lot, to say the least, so I got used to being the new kid by second grade. That made me who I am, so, in a way, I am thankful for the experience, as much as I did hate it while it was happening.
Fast forward about twenty years and here I am, trying pursue one of my dreams.
