Kinship Project
For my kinship assignment I decided to interview my mother Rebecca Andrews. She has done so many different things in her life and I decided she would be the perfect person to interview. Her parents are amazing people and raised her to the best of her ability. She grew up in a small town called Haleyville Oklahoma. This is the town she was born and raised. She grew up playing softball and cheering for her high school. She eventually went to cosmetology school where she became a very amazing hairdresser and still does it today. My mom has lived all over the globe and has seen and done so many different things in her life so far that I think will make for an interesting project. She has a very interesting take on life and experiences

She has seen so much of the world and has three amazing children who all have or are going to D1 University’s and she has an amazing family and support system. She’s got an amazing husband now who loves and cares for her like she is the only woman in the world I think that my mother is a very strong, brave woman to have gone through some of the things that she has and still be the amazingly kind and heartwarming lady that she is today.

Even now when she talks about when people had done her wrong or the trials that she’s gone through she doesn’t get angry or mad she acts as if it is all in the past and is all forgiven. I look up to my mother because if nothing else she is a role model for me now. Her life has shown me exactly what happens when you go down the wrong path and that has helped me shape my path without having to have the bad experiences for
