I am the grandchild to a Dominican woman and a Spaniard man. They had 18 kids together; three were girls and eight were born in their farm. My grandfather came from a family of architects. He built three houses in this farm, the main houses was blown away by hurrican David. My grandmother, her oldest son, her first grandchild and husband were in the farm when the hurrican hit and saw their home being taken by the storm with their very eyes. My grandmother raised almost all of her grandchildren from birth to age 14. Me, my younger brother and older sister were the last grandchildren to raised by her here in the U.S. Traveling the city of New York were the days i loved spending with her. She has taught me all i know in life and has made me a strong person. My parents worked very hard and so most of the time i spent was with her at home with my brother and sister. She called me her little buddy. I would go the city with her every weekend to visit my aunt in Harlem. Though i am not from the city of New York, I often consider my self a New Yorker because of my often visits in the weekends. I am an artist and f knew i wanted to become one since the age of six, little did i know i was already one. I go to school for interior design, and i am broke. My family take their farm for granted. My grandfather did not put his kids to school and none of them are successful in life. I cannot see why if their solutions in terms of money is right in their hands. My grandmother is now 85 years old and i dont know how long she will live for. Ive talked to my family about it and they say the coffee is all in my hands. I am only 20 years old and i am a full time college student, my parents are divorced and have a very low income. I find myself struggling at such a young point in my life because parents struggle financially. Time is ticking and our coffee farm is in one of the regions this article has stated. I don not know where to turn to start exporting our coffee. My family is not motivated and i must be the first to act since we are blessed with a farm of rich soil. I do not know were or who to turn to and thinking of taking a year of from school to get things moving.
I don’t know how long ago this was written, but I am trying to buy local coffee in Bani. Would love to taste your family’s coffee.
