Childhood memories are special for everyone. I have many happy memories of my childhood and I enjoy looking back on the good times. I was born in Denpasar, Bali and raised in Timika, Papua until I was on the 3rd grade of elementary school. And then, after that my family moved back to Bali because of my father's work.
I was an only child so I spent a lot of time with my parents. My only close friend at home is my elder sister. And I thanked God for that. She's a perfect sister for me. When I was a child all I wanted to do was be an adult or act like an adult. In all the games, my sister and I acted like someone older than we are- a teacher or a mom or a doctor. My sister and I had our own raincoat and boot shoes. During the rainy days, we would have playing with that and talking just like a professional MC together.
Some of the great memories in my childhood were sculpted during my time at elementary school. I went to an elementary school called Koperapoka I in Timika and it's probably not the best elementary school in town but I would call it the best elementary school in my life. It is a not-so-far school from my house. I still remember when I saw my friends playing roller skates outside the class and I was like wanted it like so so so so so much. And then I tell my parents that I wanted to have a roller skate. When I turned six my parents granted me my wish. And plus my uncles gave me a lot of gifts. One that I keep until now is a super big dog doll and I like it very much. I was so excited I couldn’t sleep at night. My-best-people made my sixth birthday so special.
I would define my childhood as a never-ending vacation. A weekend without a week following and playtime everlasting. Memories from my childhood life made me what I have become today. There are many different childhood memories that I can remember that really made an impact to how my personality is today....
