My Family was always A middle class family. I moved away with a man Named Jonathan Escobar. He was On Tyra Banks show, for being transgender and being kicked out. But living with him wasn't ideal for me so I escaped Back home. Biggest mistake ever. Being young In My Mind that was the only other place I thought I could go. As anyone Else I wanted a education.
