Born into Brothels Review

      Born into Brothels is a serious and sad film. The fact that a woman would go all the way just to teach a photography class. Letting the children use  the cameras was genius, it allowed them to show what goes on around them and how they cope with it. Their photos showed so much and a lot of it was pretty gruesome. Seeing all of those women lined up because they were "working" is not a pretty sight. And to think those little girls will be doing the same thing once they grow older, instead of getting an education. Also the fact that all of these children do not have HIV was shocking, because knowing that they were born into a "working" family you would think that it would be passed down. Plus, the way that these parents treat their children is absolutely disgusting. Kicking, shoving, swearing, and just being extremely rude. I was not able to watch all of it but I really want to know if the children made it into better schools or if they are still the same.  Other than that this film was truly and eye opener because it just makes me grateful that I have a loving family that supports me and gives me what I need.

Family Photo

This photo was taken when I went on a "girl's vacation" with my Mom, sister, Aunt, and Cousin. These vacations are special and important to me because I don't see my Aunt or Cousin that much so to be able to go on vacation with them is awesome. We are staying at family members house in Florida, in a gated community. On the last day we were there my mom (or cousin, they were both there so) took a picture of my sister  and I in front of the pool. I really like this picture because you can see the reflection in the pool of the background and of us. I may look happy but I was really sad to go. But I can't wait for this summer! :D

Still Life of Me

Growing up is a hastle But is rewarded with a tassle
Transitions, and ambitions make me who I am
From 1,2,3 A,B,C to AP Biology
From braces to open faces
And from simple quizzes to SAT's
Spending each week doing nothing,just to be replaced with work to make ends meet
But soon enough a college diploma will present itself
And with that walk across the stage, hastle experience will guide me to future success
