FC: Rod Allison 1st Period
1: MY LIFE BY ROD ALLISON Born on March 1st, 1991 in Kannapolis, NC my mother's name is Abbie Hopper she was a single mother of five children my dad is locked up in prison so i really don't kno much about him. My childhood days we're kinda hard for me and my mother simply because my mother was a hard worker and she didnt have a man in the house to help her. When i was five years old my older brother "Roy" begain teachin me how to play basketball, i wasn't all that good when i first but i kept practicing and im getting better and better everytime i play. Back when i was younger i looked up to my older brother as a father simply because my dad has been locked up for a very long time and i considered him as a father figure, we are very tight. I can talk to my family about anything they always give me good advice on things that im confused with or something that i need help with.
2: GROWING UP IN THE GARDENS!!! Growing up in the gardens (Royal oaks Gardens) wasnt always easy at all times, there used to be gunfights, fist fights, and other types of violence every night. People did drugs and drunk alcohol in front of kids, they didnt care if children we're playing in front of them and they still sold drugs,they did anything to make their money. But the gardens wasnt always bad as i got older the drug dealers started getting arrested and the streets got cleaner, The children got themselves a recreation center because we really loved to play sports, and have a good time. And plus nobody wanted the kids to end up like the drug dealers.
3: *MY FRIENDS* My friends are cool they are always there when i need help. i consider them to be my brothers we are always together we go to parties, chill at the mall, go to the movies, just basically hang out all the time. Nari (the guy with the black and red hat on) he is the youngest out of the bunch but the funniest, he loves to ask questions for some reason we can just be talking about going somewhere then he will just start askin a whole bunch of questions.
