Latasha Graham's Autobiography (submitted 5/17/06)

I was born on June 7, 1982, in Philadelphia, PA, to my parents, Marlene and Tommy. When I turned six years old my dad and mom were having problems. So one day she decided to leave Philadelphia and move my little brother and I to Virginia where this guy she was dating lived. When we got there I couldn't believe my eyes--it looked like a nightmare. The whole place was nothing but dirt and horrible farm animals. I could not believe my mother wanted to come here. Next we met his hillbilly family; they were chewing and spitting something out of their mouths. They looked like they hadn't taken baths in years. My mom had transferred me to a school named Buckhorn Elementary that looked like it was built before Christ.

When I turned twelve years old I had decided to go and live with my older sister and my father. Of course, my little brother came with me. The next four years were a blast. After a while, I started to miss my mother, so I went to live with her again. I was not doing what I was supposed to be doing in school, so I decided to go to Kitrell Job Corp. in Henderson. Shortly after I left, I found out I was pregnant. The hardest part was to tell my mother. Two years later I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. Now I am going to shcool to get my GED. I have a lot of goals that I would like to achieve, like becoming a Ultrasound Technician. I haved learned that anything possible! My life has been interesting.
