Junior Memory BookCh. 1 “Before I Was, There Were”Of course before I was even born there was my grandparents. My dad’s parents Santos Castellon and Vilma Pagoada. They are the closest to me and have been around since I was born. Then are my mom’s parents, Jacobo Romero and Cecilia Vallecillo, I don’t really have a close relationship with them especiallybecause my grandfather Jacobo Romero died when I was little but I still cherish the good times we have had. My dad’s parents, they are a part of the reason I am who I am today. They have always given me advice and taught me to focus on the things that are important and right, but also go with my heart and mind on what I feel is right.

Ch. 3 “Suddenly, I Became Me”I was born on the 4 of June, 1998. I am the oldest of my brothers. I was a very curious little boy. To me, exploring the whole backyard was similar to a mission. I often got hurt doing so. Let just say climbing trees and running in snake infested hay weren’t my brightest ideas! I was often with my brothers, at a young age I was an impatient boy. From my birth to when I was four I don’t remember much. My last full memory is when I got bit by my dog in my leg. This incident probably happened because of my curiosity. First my name wasn’t to be Dennis Emilio, my mom told me that she wanted David Alejandro, but my dad wanted that his first son was named like him so that’s why my name is Dennis, and Emilio was because of my dad’s oldest brother that died before I was born. I remember one time on my birthday that I got stuck on a game on Pizza Hut, I was very little and I couldn’t get the thing to open the door, so Istarted to crying a lot until my parents heard me, that was I of my very traumatic memories.
