Jasmine Nguyen

Jasmine Nguyen may be a very familiar name here in San Diego, California yet, probably because I was born in Lowell Massachusetts. I was born on July 6th, 2000. Im not really one to believe horoscopes, but sometimes my readings are a bit too accurate sometimes, so I cant help but read them.

        My mom and I came to San Diego when I was only a 3rd grader. My extended family was over here, so thats why we decided to move over. I was never very familiar with my family in Massachusetts anyway.  I grew up with two older brothers, one 18, and the other 23. The three of us didnt have much of a sibling rivalry besides constantly competing to see who got better grades My dad wasnt around much when I was a young girl, because he was unfortunately a drug addict. My mother had to divorce him after he would often go missing and not come home, resulting in multiple search parties.  Ever since, I never really had much of a father figure growing up. Ive learned that not everybody needs a father figure growing up, even though one wouldve been nice.

        I often feel that Im slowly losing my connection with my mother because lately Ive been so caught up in school. College is nearing around the corner as well, so I know that I cant do anything to improve our relationship. Its not like theres anything wrong with it anyway.
