Our Assignment

Yo. I'm Lennicia Darmona. People just call me Lenna. My family a I live in New York, but I'm not telling you where because I'm not stupid. I'm a junior in highschool, along with my twin sister, Sky. We are basically raising our 7 year old brother, Jeremy, on our own because our parents want nothing to do with us.

This year Sky and I got the same english class, and the teacher made us write these letters to a highschool, somewhere in Virginia or something, telling them about our lives. They wrote back and we compared their life to ours. Basically, it just went back and forth like that. I personally loved it because my pen-pal happened to be a lot like me - dark, quiet, creepy- you get the picture. Anyway, I thought, 'hey, why stop at a letter?', and asked him about other ways to get my story out. He replied telling me about this Blogger thing, so I wanted to give it a try. Now the whole world will know what it's like to live in constant fear of the next day. From starvation, drugs, gang violence, homelessness - you never really know if you'll make it through the next day.
