My Journey In This Life…So Far Karen Febo A. In this history I want to tell you about myself. I am a woman, 36 years old. I am from Puerto Rico. I have a son who is 17 years old. The first time I came to the United States I was 11 years old. Then I came back when I was 14 years old to live with my older sister because my family had problems with the addictions of my father. So, I stayed with my sister and went to Lynn English High School. I went there for three years. And I have to say that I didn’t appreciate then what I really needed to grow. So, I was expelled in the 12th grade but I took my GED. What I really liked there is that I met good people. I am friendly because that makes me feel alive. I like to help others because I love when people say thanks and are happy. I love music; it makes me relax. I like all kinds of music. The only point is all the music captures a different moment when I listen. I love to be creative because that is me. I’m also an introvert. I like to be my own leader. It makes me different.
