It Was Her Destiny by Chelzea, age 9
My mom's name is Kyra Esquivel and she was born in Jalisco, Mexico on March 10, 1972. My mom had to clean the house when she was a kid. She lived on the countryside. My mom’s transportation was walking and it still is. She played tons of games like racing, monkey bars, ball and jumprope. My mom has five siblings she has three sisters and two brothers. She ate whatever her mom gave her to eat. My mom went to a public school like me.
My mom came to San Fransico in 1998 because her destiny was to come here. Her first day here was at Fisherman's Wharf. One of the things she misses the most about Mexico is her family.
My mom's hobbies are listening to music and exercising. She loves to sing like me. My mom's job is cleaning hotel rooms. She doesn't like anything about her job. If my mom could have any super power it would be super speed because she could finish anything in one second.
About the Author
Hi, my name is Chelzea. I am 9 years old. I live with my mom and dad. I am good at singing and baking cakes and cookies. One day I want to get better at reading. When I grow up I want to be a rock star. If I were an animal, I would want to be a puppy because they are soft and cute. My biggest fear is getting eaten by a lion. I wonder about ghosts. Why are they so mean? The hardest part of this project was asking my mom questions in Spanish. The most interesting thing I learned about my mom was that when she was a kid her family was poor and she couldn’t go to school. I think it is unfair that I can go to school and she couldn’t because she had to pay for her school and I go to school for free.
