My name is Michelle Dane’, and I’m eleven and a half. I don’t know who will be reading this; or even if anyone will be reading this. All I know is that I have to do this. Write it all down, all the things I go through, which seems to be a lot. Maybe it’ll help me handle all the things I go through a little better. Or at least air things that are bugging me. Maybe it’ll help me understand everything better by helping me look at it in a different way.
I wish I had this when I was younger, with all I’ve been through. But I didn’t even know how to read until a few months ago let alone write; in English or in French. And I certainly wasn’t good enough to write this until now. I never had the opportunity to learn until recently. I’ve never been to school, even though the law requires it in this country.
