Meet the Family


Before going to America I never really thought deeply about my parents and their roles in my life. Although I automatically saw them as role models however as I met more and more people explaining in detail about where I come from and my family I started to realise just how amazing role models my parents are, not just as parents but as people too. I'm lucky enough to have grown up to know the difference between right and wrong, to have high moral standards, to have a consistent work ethic and good manners. It's fair to say I'm very proud of how my parents nurtured me. 


My dad left school and was encouraged to go straight into work, which is unfortunate as he's pretty intelligent. He went into the army and then into factory, at some point the factory let him go and he started up his own building services business which he's continued to run, until he got a job as a supervisor for a housing company, considering his age we were all impressed and he's also going to be doing a qualification which is an equivalent to a degree.


My mum will be the first to admit she was no golden girl at school, she left school at sixteen and began working in a travel agents, she did this for years and her customers were very fond of her and so were her colleagues, for unknown reason and decided she had enough of that and decided to start work with my dad, helping out at first and then full time, in those years she got strong and she thought a lot, eventually she went back to college and then to university where she did a course in Nursing. She qualified almost a year ago and is now working on an elderly mental health ward in a hospital doing what she loves.
I'm really proud of my parents, because no matter how long it took, they got where they were going.

I'm very lucky to have such fantastic people as parents and I've never felt more blessed.
