"I have no idea where I was born. I've never seen my father's face and I've long forgotten the face of my mother. I came to this coastal village when I was four years old. I was raised by my grandmother, who ran a small diner and constantly dumped her cold sarcasm on me. These days, while working tirelessly I polish the shards of my dreams."
