I was born to Filipino/Spanish parents. Both my mother and father are deceased. My mother died of breast cancer when I was sixteen and my father died of a cerebral stroke when I was 22 years old.
I have a 23 year old brother who currently resides in Chile. I have fourteen first cousins on my mother's side and four first cousins on my father's side. THey all live around the globe.
I am very close to my mother's family because most of them are here in the United States. My father's family is mostly in Itlay and Spain.
