here I'm From (Mrs. Patel)
I am from dizzying hula hoops, from "cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs," and homemade book shelves.I am from the pink house with no garage, home for 18 years.I am from the hibiscus flower that I saw every summer day while walking withmy grandma.I am from weekend picnics at the beach, starving after swimming.I am from my loving mother, caring father, and supportive brother.I am from the loud Indian family that was strict, yet caring.From "
hen are you going to learn to cook?" and "I expect all A's."I'm from Illinois, my birth state, from Florida, my home state, and from India, my heart.I'm from darand bath, Indian food almost every day.From the summer road trips to
ashington, D.C., St. Louis, Canada, and more, with all thecrazy laughs.
