Sometimes visitors would like to stay in Canada with their families. Then the people do not want to go back to their home and country. Some people want to stay and live in Canada.
I hope visitors keep coming to Canada year after year to see the tall ships and the waterfront and the people of Canada. I hope the visitors keep going to the library and learning more about Canada and the history of Canada.
My name is Roseann Martell and I want to tell you a little bit about myself. I left home when I was ten years old because I just didn’t get along with my family too well and back then there was a lot going on , so I decided to go on my own. I used my sister’s ID and went away to Toronto and started work in a warehouse. I had to grow up very fast. When I came back to Halifax, I had to live on the streets as I had no place to go. I ate at Hope Cottage and washed up in the washrooms at gas stations. But one good thing- I never turned to drugs or the “streets”. One day I decided there was a better way to live, so I went for help and was sent to a group home. I now had a place to eat and sleep and I did chores to help out.
A lot of things happened to me since that time.
I am older and smarter now. I have my life more together. I know what I want. I have two little girls that I love dearly. I want to get my grade 12, so I have been taking tutoring for the last two years. I am doing very well with it. I couldn’t read or write before I came, thanks to my tutor Carolyn and thanks to my math tutor, David, I am doing high school math.
One winter’s night myself and my friends went on a snowmobile trip out in the country. So the guys and I went to the store before we went on our trip. We got some food to make some meals and some other things that we needed for our trip. Our destination was a place in the woods out in the country where we had a cabin built.
