Give us a description about yourself.
Hey all, I'm Nicole.
Alright, a little about me. Well, I lived some of my childhood homeless with a couple of people and my mom. Don't pity me for it, we did what anyone had to in order to make it through. I was almost too young to remember most of it anyways. As the story goes, eventually a concerned citizen called my mother in and we got pulled to the police station and then she went into a program and I ended up in an orphanage. No one ever mentioned why, exactly. Some holidays I was fortunate enough to spend with families who lent me theirs for varying lengths of time. Eventually they always handed me back over to the child care providers. After some more boring years I was put in foster care with a school teacher, oddly enough. She and her husband taught me a lot about, well, the stuff I should have learned a lot more about by my age of 14.
June 7th the adoption papers were signed. They were finally my family. They were those kind of people you're lucky to ever meet in your lifetime. I got a job at 15 delivering newspapers and started to babysit on the side. At 16 I started to work in fast food. From there, jobs just kept getting... crappier. But that's the way life goes, isn't it? You want to grow up and be an adult so you can do anything you want until you realize your not at all free, you have just been forced into the shackles of age and responsibility. Sorry, getting off topic. I moved out when I turned 20 with enough money saved up to get my own apartment, even as a college student. By some miracle I got a grant for my course in Anthropology and at the moment I reached for the phone to call my parents, it rang. I wish I had never picked up that phone. The voice on the other end told me about the vehicle accident involving a drunk man and my parents. "I'm sorry, they didn't make it." A normal person would have collapsed and started crying the truest emotion they had ever felt in their lives. I just stood there. I don't know why, someone told me it could have been shock but it didn't matter. It didn't matter for two more years.
In my parent's will, they left me most of their money, and I had just let it stay in the bank until one day. My mother had been an animal activist, one of those people who protest when the Ringling Brothers come to town and donated what she could to the animal shelter. Maybe it was fate when that stray cat came up to my apartment window and watched me, pawing at the glass for attention soaked to the bone. That cat reminded me of myself, back when I was a stray, when I had hope and still fought for life. As soon as I wrapped my arms around that cat, I knew that I would dedicate my life doing what my mother was never able to do. I would save the animals that needed my help.
