My mom studied to be a civil engineer. She had a very well paid job. Then I got hepatitis and my sister got dengue. My dad went to mechanics school. He worked in beer factories and he fixed things for everybody.   My Dad was just obsessed with coming to New York. He came here when he was younger and stayed with my aunt who was very wealthy.
