I was named after my dad and my dad was named  after his mom’s dad. I like my name because my dad is a hard working man. More than just being my dad, he is my friend.  We are always doing things together and he has taught me so many things, such as showing me how to work. He would always take me to work with him. He did this to show me how hard it was so I would do good in school and get a better job. My father showed me the way around things and how to do work the right way. When I was 12 year old, my dad showed me how to use a impact gun to torque bolts at his job when.

Another reason I look up to my father is because he helped raise my sisters and me. Most fathers are not involved in their kids life. If my father was absent in my life it would have been way harder for me. My father came into the United States with only the clothes on his back. From this he has been able to build a better life for him and his family.

 

No one in my family calls me Jaime because me and my dad share the same name. My family members call me by my nickname. The nickname my family uses is Jimmy. They called me Jimmy because I am younger than my dad. This also helps with the confusion of caling me and my dad Jaime. When I was smaller I did not like to be called by my nickname. Now that I am older, I do not mind it as much. I take pride in my name because I will be the only one in our family to pass on our father’s last name.

 

I believe my name is interesting because I only have one last name. That is because my dad thought that having my moms last name was not going to look good. On the other hand my two sister do have my moms lasts name. The father reasoning for this is because he thought it would of  flowed better with their name.___

    Dear Jaime Orozco JR

    Your post was a really good and interesting post. You put a lot of emotion into it. I liked how you explained everything. You made it very clear so that the reader could understand what they were reading. One sentence that really sticks out to me was the “Most fathers are not involved in their kids life. If my father was absent in my life it would have been way harder for me.” I liked this sentence because it its true if someone would grow up without a father it would be really hard for them because they wouldn’t have a dad. It would also mean that the mom would of have to work extra hard for raise all of the children. You know that would suck. Another sentence that sticked out to me was  “My father came into the United States with only the clothes on his back. From this he has been able to build a better life for him and his family.” This sentence sticked out to me because idk it just does. Your post reminds of me of when like this guy told me a story. Thanks for writing I look forward to seeing another one of your amazing posts.
