Describe your growing up years: I grew up with my grandmother since my mom had to work abroad. It was later on in my high school years that I was able to accept the absence of my parents. So it was a bit difficult for me. And since I was an only child living with an over protective grandmother, it was little bit lonely for me. I was also bullied at school for wearing my eyesglases and being fat and nerdy.
