My grandmother has always been my mom’s hero. I’ve grown up hearing daily stories about what a magnificent woman she has been. She was born in 1925 and her life has been far from easy. Her family was very poor, she had 5 siblings, and her father passed away from tuberculosis when she was just 12. A few years later her mother passed away and she and her 2 big sisters were left taking care of the whole family. She had to work odd jobs since very young age just to make sure she and her siblings don’t go to bed hungry. She never went to school as she had to work and school was just not in the cards for her although I am sure she would have aced it, she was really smart.
