When I graduated from college I applied for my masters and my family was not very supportive. They wanted me to stop school and start working because we moved here from Mexico so they thought it was time for me to work. They didn't support me or talk to me for a while so I decided nonetheless to get my masters degree in addiction medicine.
While I was growing up my father really suffered from alcoholism so that is why I decided to work in addiction medicine. That challenge really empowered me. After I got my masters he then became sober so it turned out to be great. My father has been sober for nine years now. Me getting my masters empowered him to become sober.
I had a doll when I was little her name was Rosita. She was a Strawberry Shortcake doll but she was Mexican.
I was an only child and she kept me company.
