This is Who I Am

My name is Francisca StGermain. I was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida. But I’ve been spending most of my teenage life in Cape Coral, Florida. Why I feel my story is important is because some don’t know me enough to find it. I come from 2 foreign born parents who are middle class. And I also have 3 other siblings. Now we’ve gone through everything and when I mean everything I mean EVERYTHING. My mom and dad have lost important jobs, we’ve lost our house three times, and have had tragedies in our families. But this makes me who I am because I take all those struggles to heart and do better each and every day in school and in life. My story is not only unique but it’s mine. This is who I am!
