Assignment #1

My name is Mahamadou Diallo. When i was younger i  always disliked my name. I would always get laughed at because my name was different and very difficult to pronounce. As time passed i learned more about my name and why i received it, and in no time i soon started appreciating my unique name more and more. I was named after my grandfather, he had recently passed away right before i was born. My parents hoped by naming me after him that i would inherit his determination and strong will to do whatever he set his mind too. Their wishes came true as i inherited my grandfathers strong traits. My parents told me he was the type of person who believed that the sky is the limit and you can do what ever you set your mind too, just like me. This research into my name impacted me greatly. It opened my eyes and made me realize how important a name can be and how even a simple name or difficult name can hold so much hopes, dreams and aspirations behind it.

  1. First do you mind me asking where you are from? Also just like you Igor made fun of for having my name I remember when I was younger there was a story title in our book with my name but it described a very old lady and from there on I heard just about everything about my name. As for being named after someone your parents thought so highly of us a great inspiration to become something better in life.
