Do you want me to tell you that I came from nothing? Would my story of being born into a home with no hot water on an island smaller than the city I currently live in make you cheer louder?

What if I told you that I had one TV, two channels, one “nice” pair of shoes and two school uniforms? Or that chickens occupied our front yard and we boiled water and poured it into buckets of cold water to take baths.
