Literacy Sponsors/ “Dear Maria..”

Dear Maria,

My literacy sponsors would be my Mother and Grandmother because those are my main family members that I go to for any important intellectual facts or information. They are very wise because they’ve experienced a lot more than I did in life so far. I use them as guides and supports for me to be a better person. Without having a Father involved in my life at a young age was hard because back then was the time I needed him most. I had to ask my grandmother about some personal things in life especially the fact I had no male role model to speak to. My mother on the other hand told me straight forward on how life is and what things are expected to happen such as getting a job, going to school, and other important things. I’m thankful for my sponsors/role models because they taught me how to be a bigger person and a better man than my father was.
